[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Damselflies are insects of the suborder Zygoptera, in the order Odonata. They are similar to dragonflies, the other odonatan suborder, Amisoptera, but are smaller, have slimmer bodies and most species fold the wings along the body when at rest, as can be seen in the picture. The compound eyes are large but are more widely separated and relatively smaller tan those of a dragonfly.
Odonates are found in all the continents, except Antarctica.
In the photo a bluetail damselfly (Ischnura heterosticata).
