Hi friends,
This is a Dragonfly, nicknamed as Red dragonfly because of it's color, but I do not know the exact scientific name because of their abundance, variations and species richness of their main "Family-Odonata" of insecta class of Arthopad pylum. I have captured this sheer beauty in my last trip of Kudremukh jungles. Always we can spot these near any waterbody ( I found this near River Bhadra). Dragonflies can be matched to a Pure modern flying machine... they hover,they can speed up suddenly and can hunt small insects while on wings!, they perch on such twings and wait for their prey. the peeping sun through the canopy of jungle and shady bacground gave an oprtunity to shoot him in perfect stage !
