Many thanks for presenting us this apparently rare dragonfly. The simple composition well serves the aim of the picture and the viewer gets a good overall impression of this beautiful insect. I also find the lighting- and colour management very good and the nicely blurred background highlights the shapes of the dragonfly at best. Moreover, your picture is well accompanied by your notes that are a subtle and pleasant mix of narration and information.

A beautiful capture of this rare dragonfly. I remember Ajmer very well - an an amazing place - but then so many places in India are.
Your account reminds me of an evening in Nagur - two boys started talking to us whilst we were eating and insisted that we came back to meet their parents who were teachers - we spent a lovely evening in the teachers' compound.

Hello Ram !
I really LOVE the color of this Dragonfly, I think I had nevr seen this species before. And you have made such a great capture. I like the very typical pose of the insect, the vivid colors, the blurred BG, and the composition, with lots of space around the Dragon. Very well done !

It does look really special - the 'usual' tones of blue but with those special yellow spots. Dragonflies and damselflies are like Lego for me - there's many variations you'll find been put together of some known 'ingredients' or parts :) I'm not at all a specialist but like to watch them very much.
Very well taken especially for a singe frame..
Congratulations and TFS!

This species is uncommon in our region. It is really beautiful. Composition of the shot and POV are the best for this subject I think. All features of the dragonfly if shown perfectly against the fine smooth BG. Excellent close-up. My best wishes and TFS.

It's a very nice dragonfly. Never seen one coloured this way. I like the uniform background and pov.
Nice to see new contributions from you. Lately I'm a rare guest on TN!
