[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This damselfly look like a female from family of Coenagrionidae.

The insect family Coenagrionidae is found in the order Odonata and the suborder Zygoptera. There are more than 1100 species in this family. Making this family the largest damselfly family. Coenagrionidae has six subfamilies and they are Agriocnemidinae, Argiinae, Coenagrioninae, Ischnurinae, Leptobasinae, and Pseudagrioninae.

This family is referred to as the Narrow-winged damselflies or the Pond damselflies. The Coenagrionidae enjoy a worldwide distribution, and are among the most common of damselfly families. This family has the smallest (in size) of damselfly species.

More than 90 genera of the family Coenagrionidae are currently accepted.

With 90 genera and 1100 species in this family, clearly making it very difficult for me to identify its ID.

Hello Benyamin
First class as usual.
Thanks for sharing

Hallo Benyamin,
a very beautiful macro shot of this female, very similar to a Ischnura pumilio female on my picture, superb sharpness and marvellous colours, very well composed with a fantastic BG.
Best regards

Hello Benjamin,
Lovely capture with razor sharp details and exceptional colours.
Nice composition, POV and perfect focus.

Good Morning Ben,

Brilliant close-up, the focus on the damselfly looks very precise. Looks like you've managed the light quite well, using a very shallow DOF, great composition and angle too. Nicely spotted.
TFS and have a nice Sunday!
