Identify the insect?

Can anyone identify this insect photographed recently:

                                                                                                Photograph by: Zaka Imam

A large size insect with total length head-to-wing measuring about an inch. Seems noctural, resistant to fly in daylight. When pushed, flew away very fast leaving no trace of direction.


  1. I hope you find out...I found a similar one this morning, but the wing tips were pink! The body of it reminds me of a dragonfly...but dragon fly wings dont sit like that when they land...

  2. I have not identified it yet. Await more response, before I land into a library or take help of zoological survey.Thanks for comments.
