I saw this in my garden today. I don't remember seeing this before in my yard. Can anyone help me identify this? At first I thought a portion of its wings were cut but when I looked closer, that's how it was made, not cut, but no brown pigmentation.

Fascinating, Dinu! I love dragonflies but can't ID them. Great pic of it, too.

Neurothemis fulvia... is this the one?
I guess so. Anyone confirm this?

It sure looks like that might be the ID, Dinu, and it does say it's in India. Let's see what @JRsbugs thinks.

Notice the saw-like edge of the wing - now I know why they find it difficult to disentangle themselves after being caught in a spider's webbing.
