Damselfly

I was surprised this lovely damselfly stood still for me while I fussed around with my camera getting it into the right mode and then angling it and pointing it up close. It was as cool as a cucumber. Definitely not a damsel in distress hawhaw

I'm going to look a bit silly if someone points out that this is infact a dragonfly.

I don't have a clue what it is, but I've never heard of an insect damsel...I've heard of other kinds, though.

Nice shot.

You even caught its delicate, lace wings. Great shot.

A wonderful shot, Cara. Great delicacy and great colour. Like it a lot ...

They always look so primitive to me, almost prehistoric.

You could call this whatever you liked as I wouldn't know the correct name anyway. I'm clueless about buggy type critters. It's a really cute photo of the damsel-dragonfly thingy :)
