[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken next to a lake bed on the way back to Bangalore from Mysore. Looks like the "Brachythemis contaminata". Though the world over it does not have a common name but is called "Dithc jewel" in India.

This one chased away a Crocothemis servilia perched on this twig constanly and reigned supreme till the other guy finally couped up all his strength and shooed this jewel away.
