Welcome to the club of UnID dragonflies. I have a few which needs ID. You have made a wonderfully clear shot here. Amazing details and beautiful colors. Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Very fine capture of this dragonfly. It could be Sympetrum flaveolum that we have here but which also occurs in northern Asia. I like its pose and you show its colours and patterns very well.
TFS and kind regards, Ulla

It has this Christmas in summer look with the colours...but then it is nice for me to see anything but white snow now...And in the traditional Ram style as well..Very nicely framed. I am pleased you are posting so often now..I have been behind...what's that old US saying.."The faster I go, the behinder I get"....

What an excellent capture in sharpness, colors and composition my friend, those wing-tips look like miniature "leds" to me, those huge eyes and that powerful torso are very captivating. Well done indeed!
I have to disagree with the I.D. I think it is a Red-veined Darter (Sympetrum fonscolombii), probably a juvenile that hasn't fully developed the red pigment in its wings. See here.
A nice colourful photo that has great lighting and even exposure.
Very sharp with great clarity.
Superb DOF as well that isolates the dragonfly from its BG.
Well done Ram,

Great ! The dragonflies are my prefered insects,thei pic is very nice,thanks for share,Luciano
Seems like you have a bit of a problem (some more research needed) relating to the assistance on the ID. One source claiming your dragonfly to be a certain species and another providing a counter claim which suspects it to be a different species. So what's new in this forever difficult task of finding the correct ID of some of these critters we find in nature (chuckle)? Good luck with the search…
The late afternoon sun made this shot rich in colour and you managed to catch some nice details on the insect. The blurring of the BG worked well as it came out quite fine and I can see no remaining noise in that area (on my monitor anyway). The only slight nit I might pick is the size of the posting. Seems a little small to my personal preference, but maybe it is only the old age that is busy getting to my eyes.
Well done and TFS.

Excellently composed picture of the nice scene and beautiful dragonfly. I like wonderful rich colour pattern, excellent details of the insect and pictorial BG. DOF is selected perfectly. Whole image of the insect is in focus. My best wishes and TFS.
