Hello Ram,
What an eye catching dragonfly image you have presented to us. Very interesting that the male is red while the female is this beautiful golden yellow color. The pose is wonderful, giving us a great look at head. wings and body. Focus is tac sharp displaying excellent detail. I really like the reflective lighting on it's wings.
