Blue Marsh Hawk

Dragonflies are certainly beautiful creatures and Nepal has a lot of dragonfly species. I was able to take this picture of the  Blue Marsh Hawk Dragonfly in Sitapaila which now is slowly turning into an urban area from a farmland. These dragonflies have a nice blue color abdomen color with a black Cerci.

Please feel free to comment below if the above species has been misidentified.
