[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During my week-long stay in Delhi, this Long-legged Marsh Glider was the only insect I found in the garden of our residential complex. It is a small sized dragonfly that allows me to shoot it from any angle because it stays put once it is perched on something.
Since my camera had been freshly cleaned, I was spared the trouble of editing this picture to remove the spots of dirt.
It was a cloudy day, so I used the fill flash to take this picture.

Long-legged Marsh Glider is a yellowish brown, medium sized dragonfly with noticeably long legs. The thorax has three black stripes on each side and the underside of the abdomen is black.

Trithemis pallidinervis is found in China, Indonesia, India, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines, Peninsular Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan.

Hello Ram,
The fill flash worked out great, as it really brings out the color and detail. Wonderful pose and such an attractive specimen. Very good DOF and just the right amount of exposure. Well done!!
