Hi friends in TN,

This dragonfly was captured rather early in the morning and still inactive. The situation allowed me to get close from underneath the body for a few shots. This one looks pretty much like Neurothemis tulia that I have posted earlier.

Thanks for viewing.

Lighten Shadows

I used Photoshop's Shadow/Highlight adjustment tool to lighten the shadows a bit. I think this helps the dragonfly stand out a little better against the background. I also removed a couple of stray spots on the image.
