Don't you think this is Brink's Shadowdamsel? From what I know, Drooping Shadowdamsel is different from the one here... I'm not an expert in dragonflies at all but this photo matches with the photo of Brink's Shadowdamsel in the guide I use (A Naturalist's Guide to the Butterflies and Dragonflies of Sri Lanka by Gehan de Silva Wijeyeratne). Kindly correct me if I'm wrong :)
