I took this snap near one of the creek in west coast State of Maharashtra of India.

Dragonfly was relaxing on one of the stick. I dont know exact species of this fly. Anyway, I liked the pose and I could not stop myself from taking this snap.

Please let me know how do u find this photo.........

Just amazing, Shailesh,
this dragon is wonderful, I never saw a dragonfly with such a small body before.
IMO the BG is a little noisy, I made a Workshop for you, hope you don't mind.
Thanks for this beauty, bye and greetings

Love it! It's a wonderful DF and very sharp, with an excellent light. Exactly the way dragonflies should be enjoyed in the sun.
I agree with Sabine of course about the noise, but I admit to being noise-blind : I never notice it. The ws is OK, but almost painfully sharp, I find, as the PP has also affected the main subject. Very much a matter of taste I guess... Great work, thanks for sharing
