[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Generally what I saw were dragon flies with transparent or semi transparent single colored wings. This insect was little strange to my. It had partially colored wings and the flapping speed as low compared to normal once, as a result its speed was much slower. But, I must say it did look very beautiful. I hope someone can identify this insect for me.

Hello Soumen,
Je ne peux pas identifier cette libellule mais je trouve cette image magnifique. Le sujet se détache bien sur l'arrière plan.

Hello Soumen,
A fine capture of this Picturewing. Though on my screen it seems a little too dark, the frontal POV shows the wings and head with top sharpness and natural colours against a good neutral BG.
Thanks and best regards,

This beautiful dragonfly is a skimmer..Called the Common Picture wing ( Rhyothemis Variegata). This is a female of the species. Yellow and brown patch on wings are indicators of a female while transparent and golden yellow for the males..As others have indictated your picture though from good POV and excellent wing position is a little too dark.

Hello Soumen.
Lovely dragonfly shown with this fine-colord picture. I think that Ram Thakur made some shots of this species.
Kind regards

You purchased noise by over-sharpening this otherwise decent macro of a Picturewing.
I did a workshop to improve the presentation.

Well composed macro that shows excellent sharpness and detail of the subject. Your clear BG, DOF, lighting and POV are all very good.
