[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was amazed to see the color of this dragonfly. It was very busy going around a small pond in the Nehru Zoological Park, Hyderabad. It will go around the pond, come back and settle on the same flower. So all I had to do is to wait at the flower for it to come back after its small outing :).

Sowmnya, The view and composition is okay. I would love to see the dragonfly little close to the frame. It is slightly soft. Thanks for sharing and keep shooting. Ganesh

Good picture of a Scarlet Skimmer (male) on a lotus flower, Sowmya.
The details and colours on the subject are nice. You have also composed this shot well.
Keep shooting and all the best.

Hi Sowmya,
Excellent capture of this beautiful Red Dragonfly on a Lotus.
TFS, best regards. Ferran

Hi Sowmya,
This one of your better images well executed. good composition and colors. however, as an Indian you better know our national flower, lotus. I am not sure that this is lotus but star lily, check out. tfs.

Hi Sowmya,

This is much better compostion from you, but do I see some noise in the image? good effort.TFS.

wow this is really great shot, I never got any chance to get as close as this one, nice vivid red color with great details
