Hello Srikumar,
Great macro of this dragonfly in beautiful colours, excellent details and background. The blurry wings give the photo dynamic. Taken from the best POV.
Regards,
Peter

Caught this nice and sharp. Not the easiest to identify. Looks like it is yellow tailed ashy skimmer or have you considered Blue Marsh Hawk Female. With Top view and clear wing spots it should be possible to confirm.

No more comments needed.
Mario with kind regards.

thanks gr lou

Very beautiful image.The focus is very good on the body.

Ciao Srikumar, great macro of fantastic dragonfly, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Sri,
Spectacular macro. Body is sharp enough, which automatically means the closer wings are out of focus, but they aren't disturbing here. Nicely blurred background, nice colors and pleasant composition. A good photo overall.
Best regards, László

I recently read about the great migration of dragonflies from Southern India to Africa via Maldives ( http://news.bbc.co.uk/earth/hi/earth_news/newsid_8149000/8149714.stm ).
