[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Research on net suggests it's a Southern Skimmer. However, since it's a European species, I'm not sure if it is seen in India too. Experts kindly help.

Orthetrum brunneum, the southern skimmer, is a species of 'skimmers' belonging to the family Libellulidae. This 'skimmer' is present in most of Europe.
