petite libellule sur une feuille. Je la trouve très gracieuse, et il est rare d'en voir qui ne soient pas en plein vol

I think it's an damselfly,
I really like this shot, good capture, fine colours, great dof, nice frame, very nice Cecile

Bery good Cecile
Nice colours and good composition with good details.
Well done

Very nice picture Cecile - though it is not a libellula, Jaap is right it is a damselfly. I have never seen one so pale before, but you got it right in a nice composition and the colours look natural. The tail just drops out of focus but with the head in focus it is not important.

I'm pretty sure this is of the Platycnemis genus, as for the species I'm not so sure. Anyway, it's a great photo, the tip of he abdomen is dropping out a little. A photo of this quality begs for a detailed/better note!

It's definitely a damselfly of some sort. Which particular type, however, I've no idea. I've never seen one with stripes on its head also, only stripes on the body ;-)
DOF is rather shallow for this angle, you might consider using a higher F-stop next time to get also the tail end sharp ;-)

Superbe image tres nette , j'aime ce controle de l'image et les couleurs du beau travail .
