[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rhyothemis phyllis or Yellow-striped Flutterer Dragonfly flies with fluttering in slow speed, gliding most of the time. Its wings are much longer than its body. This dragonfly is easily recognized. The head and body are dark brown in colour. Its wings are clear but tinged with yellow, with black tips. On the hind-wings base there are the yellow stripe on brown patterns.

Hello my dear neighbour,
What an impressive dragonfly with these long spread wings and its yellow/black coloration. Despite the difficult point of view , you reached a perfect sharpness all over the wings (good choice of f/16). The green background is a ideal contrast too .

An impressive species of dragonfly well taken by you to achieve fine total sharpness and natural colours from a POV that is great but not the easiest.
The composition against an OOF natural green BG is excellent too.
