Juggling Elves

Along the road from Weichang to Chengde (here), there were a lot dragonflies playing handstand in the bush. They were small in size, but charming.

Update:
The First Species:Sympetrum pedemontanum Allioni, 1776
The Second Species:Sympetrum depressiusculum ( Selys,1841 )
Family: Libellulidae (the largest dragonfly family)
