Hi Sowndarya !

An excellent macro with some very beautiful colors and perfect contrast.
Interesting description provided.
Have a beautiful day,

Yes, it is a female Crocothemis sevilia, Sowndarya.
The picture is quite sharp and crisp and the colours too are very good.
Two things I did not like about the presentation:
1. Centred position of the subject within the frame
2. Colour of the frame -- the saffron inner line. It snatches the attention away from the subject because it matches the colour of the subject.
Hope you did not mind my candid observations.

Ciao Sowndarya, great capture of beautiful dragonfly with fantastic colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, brava, ciao Silvio

Hi Sowndarya. Excellent sharp and DOF in goof lightning colours.

Hello Sowndarya,

Excellent macro and the colours and details are pretty good.
