Powershot Sunday - Green Marsh Hawk

Green Marsh Hawk

Green marsh hawk is a very common dragonfly I shot not so long ago but I thought of sharing it now. It is one of a difficult shot I shoot, while the dragonfly was hopping from stem to stem on the rose plants potted at home.  It is a yellow dragonfly with a green face and eyes mottled with black, transparent wings with tinted yellow and thorax in greenish yellow with black stripes and broad black rings on green abdomen.

Great photography. You must come to my parents' home in Mohali whenever you come to north India. Lots of such stuff there :-)

Super. I can understand how difficult it would have been to shoot a constantly moving insect, like this. Your photos are clear! :)

it is so beautiful! in the first shot, it seems like its body is made up of shiny metal, like those Chinese toys. I also loved the patterns of the wings! indeed, mother nature is the best artist :)
