Clear-winged Forest Glory

Beautiful Damselfly, a Clear-winged Forest Glory (Vestalis gracilis) from Indira Gandhi National Park Anamalais. This damselfly has briliant colours. In sunlight the body colouration is like mettalic/ shining green, in shade it's a bit less shiny. The wings look clear/transparent but at particular angle you can see a bluish shade on the wings.
