    Chinese articulated odonata plasticonius.....very rare sighting, especially in a tree; they're more partial to the flora in Hobbyus Lobbyus.

    LOL, Nadeem. Perhaps it's time to call a truce! What clever folks here. It really took me a few minutes to decide that the dragonfly was not real. :-)
