White-legged Damselfly
Platycnemis pennipes (Pallas, 1771)
-thanks hansh

Damselflies (Suborder Zygoptera) are often confused with dragonflies, but the two insects are distinct: most damselflies at rest hold their wings together above the body, whereas dragonflies at rest hold them out, either horizontally or slightly down and forward. Also, the eyes on a damselfly are separated, while those of the dragonfly are nearly touching. Both are members of the Odonata, and their life cycles are similar.

Hello Christos.
I think these are Whit-legged damselflys (Platycnemis pennipes).
You captured them well with a nice POV.
