[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On my way back from a trek to the Himalayas recently, I spotted this Damselfly at a water spring. It was a fairly large specimen. I tried to identify it, but despite an intensive research, I could not come with a definite ID.
The picture was taken hand-held from a distance of about 2 metres. It was late in the morning and the light was a bit harsh. Cropped, resized and touched slightly on PS CS5.

Hallo Ram,
sorry, i cannot help you about the ID, i think that the family is Coenagrionidae, this is an interesting website to consult http://www.asia-dragonfly.net/; very good sharpness and beautiful natural colours.
