ID please (Aeshnidae family, Aeshna Genus)

I found this beautiful dragonfly on the compound wall of neighbor's house. It looked very fresh and was there for sometime. I usually don't upload images of nature with human element but I need Id of this beauty and hence the post. Hope somebody finds the correct name of the species.

Hi Nagaraj,
lovely composition is a very special capture. the wall gives a lively background and the texture renders an artistic view.
well seen in details especially the wings and the body.
I like the little green leaves at the corner too as in gives a special effect to the composition, as it beats the monotonous of the view.
Well thought shot.


Ciao Nagaraj, beautiful dragonfly, I never see before, lovely macro with wonderful natural colors, good details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Nagaraj

Superbe prise. Belle composition et netteté parfaite. La libellule est évidement magnifique aussi !

Bravo et au revoir...JP

Hello Nagraj.

A beautiful shot of this wonderful dragonfly.
I'm not familiar with dragonflys of your country but next weekend i will receive a book with dragonflys all over the world. I will look for it then.
A great shot of this one, great colors and very sharp.
