Spotting

Description:

A very cool, club-tail Dragonfly that could rotate its tail as if on a ball-bearing (?). I thought I took a video of it doing this but am not sure. Will look for and upload if found.

Ashish-I'm thinking more along the lines of: Gomphidae - Clubtails as it had a club-like ending on its tail and could rotate its tail left and right...to attract a mate maybe?
