Here you have a male, Green Skimmer Orthetrum sabina sabina (Drury, 1770).
This is probably the commonest dragonfly in Sri Lanka. I photographed it near my dragonfly-pond, where it is a regular. It was found at midday, and I didn't use any macro flash.
These were fired through my Canon 100mm f 2.8 Macro USM lens.
And it was coupled with my newest toy. Any guesses?
