The way you have captured this unidentified Damselfly looks as if it is hanging or floating in the air. I like the colours of the head and thorax, it is definite rare and different to what we often see on the gallery. I also find the slim and slender body very interesting to look at. It almost looks as if there is a neon light hidden at the end. Thanks for sharing this lovely specimen. Best regards.

It is always frustrating not to be able to put a name to a beautiful subject that one has photographed Ram. At least I find this so.
Even in Europe where most of the wildlife can be looked up in books and on the internet there are still gaps.
These gaps must be must be much larger in tropical and subtropical countries where there is a much larger biological diversity, so that only the birds and mammals can be looked up in the appropiate book.
So though there are certainly experts that could put an ID to this fine damselfly, they are most probably so busy pursuing their field of interest that the only availble litteratue is to be found in specialist articles in specialist journals.
So that for the non-specialist like you and I Ram, naming such beauties as this is an eternal problem.
I can only say that this is a fine capture taken with excellent sharpness and colours from a dorsal POV.
Thanks for posting it and for your kind comments on my hawk-moth picture.
All the best,

Dear Ram Sir
An excellent capture of this beautiful damselfly. Superb sharp details and a lovely diagonal low angle composition. Regarding ID like others, I am also lost to the NOIDA wilderness. Thanks a lot for sharing.

This little Damselfly is a real beauty and very well captured considering its size! It has a lovely combination of colours and you show details very sharply against the background. I've found that the smaller the insect the harder to find an ID, not surprising perhaps! I have a small stock of unidentified creatures! ;-)
Many thanks and kind regards, Ulla

Somehow it is fascinating to find some "new" subjects, to have to make some research, even if we don't find the right ID. And especially in the micro-world there are so many creatures to discover. I'm amazed to see such a small Damselfy. It looks very fragile and has a very fine coloring.
Most interesting catch.
Thanks a lot and kind regards
Hi sir, this is a fantastic image. A good approach on the damselfly, capturing its dorsal view on a nice perch. The DOF is also fine. This is a female damselfly of Pseudagrion decorum. The male is deep blue and lookes even beautiful. tfs
