dragonfly sans life

One morning, we found this dragonfly inside the house. I picked it up and placed it on a plant in our balcony. Three days later, I found it dead.

dragon-fly variant?

This lovely insect was seen at Shilparamam on Sept-2. It was resting on a blade of grass. It was difficult to shoot without disturbing it. It took several seconds before I could get my mobile from the bag. I took 7 blind shots - 2 were blurred and 5 were fine. The close movement disturbed the insect and it took off. Though it looks like a dragonfly, its flying style was like a butterfly. It fluttered around the spot several minutes and settled down. Now the position was better for a shoot. As I moved the camera closer, it took off again. I did not want to bother it any more..
