[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Male Coromandel Marsh Dart ( Ceriagrion coromandelianum) found covered with dew drops, hope you like it.
Thank you for viewing and comments.

The insect family Coenagrionidae is found in the order Odonata and the suborder Zygoptera. The Zygoptera are the damselflies, which although less known than the dragonflies, are no less common. There are more than 1,100 species in this family, making it the largest damselfly family.

Hi Samiran,
I'm glad I'm thge first in the queue to share my congratulations with you for this extremely well captured, sensational image. Perfectly composed (although I can imagine the photo with tighter crop on both the top and the bottom, but it's just another idea and doesn't mean the original doesn't work) photo with exceptional details, wonderful sharpness and shallow DoF - and the small dew drops make the whole pic sensational. The photo of the day to me. Hats off of you.
Best regards, László

Hello Samiran,
The dew drops really make this a stand-out image. I like the way the water droplets seem to reflect the light blue colors of either it's body or wings. Exceptional detail has been captured and the exposure is superb. I have never taken a shot of one of these little insect covered with dew like this. How Neat!!

Samiran, has demonstrated this wonderful photograph that Nature is the author of the most precious jewels. No goldsmith could conceive something. Admirable, Sam.

Hi Samiran,
So wonderful to see your morning capture of this beautiful damselfly with dew drops all over the body! Amazing, really amazing. Just as the proverb goes: An early bird catches the worms. So you were the early bird who caught this dewy damselfly. Everything about it is superb. I esp like the sideway T-shape image or composition. Very well done, my friend. Thanks and have a nice weekend!
