Very beautiful one. Even wings are red. :D
And very nicely captured indeed.
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D

Really nice close up picture. It surely looks like a Flame Skimmer (Libellula saturara), although at first I thought it was an African species :D

What an incredible looking dragonfly. They must look very beautiful when they are flying. I like the angle of the photo...over the shoulder :wink:
