Well Sumon, you might be having difficulty with your ID, but not at all with your camera.
Your shots are absolutely superb, especially this one!
The lighting, colour, clarity and composition are all perfect.
It doesn't get any better than this.

They are difficult to identify. We learn so much by trying though, don't we? I often get distracted and forget what I was originally looking for. ha ha
This is another great capture. Wonderfully steady, sharp, well composed photo!

I have the same difficulty in ID a dragonfly. This is wonderful image. The light is perfectly casted on the body and the dark background is perfect for this portrait. On the spot focus and exposure. Very well done.

Wow, you've really timed it well to get a shot in such perfect light. It looks almost unreal but is very beautiful as is the composition. Great sharpness and wonderful colours.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

What an unusual presentation of a dragonfly. Unusual but wonderful. It looks like neon lights against the black bg. Wonderful lighting making the wings look spectacular.

WOW sumon, the lighting here is magnificent. I love how the tail appears to be translucent and the wings are catching the backlight. Excellent colours, great composition and nicely sharp. The dark BG really sets it off

I think you are right, Sumon. It looks like a female Trithemis aurora to me too. I just made a comparison and there are striking similarities here.
Another thing that suggests strong indications about its being a T.aurora is the posture that seems to be a favourite of these dragonflies; they like to lift their abdomens pretty high while perched -- almost perpendicular to the perch if it happens to be flat and level.
In this image, I see the vestiges of that posture. It is a lovely capture with the angle of the light giving a brilliant outlook to the wings. The subject stands out dramatically against the dark BG, as if bathed in spotlight.
Well done and TFS.

Remarkable, Sumon. Dragonflies seem to be one of the most common macro subjects on TN. Having shot them I know some of the reasons (they're big, they sit still for a while, their eyes are remarkable). But you've taken a common subject and approached it from a new angle. The light and black bg really help, too. I love the way the details sparkle in the light. Very well done!
P.S. I gave some of your other shots a browse and I think you have a remarkable catalog here.
