These photos were taken in Sidomulyo Village, North Aceh, near the Rayap River. If you've ever been there, you'll see a lot of common blue jewels (Heliocypha perforata - Percheron, 1835), which is perched on twigs or rocks. They occasionally fly low over the river's surface.
Yup, the common blue jewel is a jewel damselfly species that prefers to live near rocky rivers. This is a dark-faced Odonata insect with a really gorgeous physique; the thorax is a mix of blue, black, and pink, with a black belly with blue markings; it has translucent black wings with pink patterns and transparent brown wings at the base.
