[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photo taken from Kottayam, Kerala. Greater Crimson Glider belongs to Libellulidae family, and is a common dragonfly here. The dark spots in the abdomen and black legs helps to distinguish them from other red dragonflies. This one is a male.

The reddish patch in the background from top left to bottom right is a village road. Also took some other shots from different angles so as to avoid it and to maintain the green background behind the dragonfly. But I prefer this one as I feel the light red background is matching with the vivid red color of the dragonfly, and is giving a flow to the picture.

Hello Abhinav,
Very nice macro with an excellent sharp focus on the head and beautiful natural colours. Good choice of background. Taken from an excellent point of view.
