[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a male Crocothemis servilia (Scarlet Skimmer) I shot last month in my school lotus pond using 70-300mm lens.
The male of the species is scarlet red whereas the female is golden yellow.
This year, there are plenty of males but very few females at this favourite spot of dragonflies.
Thanks for looking.

Hello Ram,
Nice to see this dragonfly so close. Beautiful colors with fine blurred background and excellent sharpness.

Hi Ram,
Nice and spectacular photo with vibrant red (making nice contrast with the blue-ish background) and good sharpness. Nice textures on the abdomen and good light management. Probably the right wing is a little too closed to the edge of the frame, but except for this minor issue, a top class image.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Ram,
Very good shot of the male Scarlett Skimmer in a fine looking pose. Wonderful detail and rich vibrant colors. I love the bright blue marking just behind its eye. Well done!!
