The red winged one looks like a dragon fly or a damselfly, perhaps?
The red wings with the white tips are very beautiful, crying out "look at me".I see dragon- and damselflys in different colours in my garden but not this one. The little brown butterfly looks so humble on the hibiscus leave, and still has a lovely pattern on its wings. Great, to observe all sorts of visitors to the garden.

Cindee/Trudi,
Every winged creature flit about in the mornings like there's no tomorrow. But late afternoons, they r..e..s..t-- on their chosen leaf, twig, or a clothesline that's just been emptied of a load of laundry.
I think the red one is a dragonfly.I looked up and found out that dragonflies have their "iridiscent wings outspread at rest" unlike damselflies whose wings are usually closed at rest. Thanks for visiting!
