[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a morning capture in slightly cloudy conditions of the Pantala Flavescens, the wandering glider or globe skimmer, a very common dragonfly everywhere.

The cloudy weather maybe made it stay at one place and allowed a rather close shot. Did not notice the small grasshopper on the leaf behind the wing while taking this shot.
