[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ischnura sp

(Charpentier, 1840)


Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be distinguished by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along, and parallel to, the body when at rest. Furthermore, the hindwing of the damselfly is essentially similar to the forewing, while the hindwing of the dragonfly broadens near the base. Damselflies are also usually smaller than dragonflies and weaker fliers in comparison, and their eyes are separated.

Hello Paulo.
A great shot of these two colorful damselflies in copulation. It seems interesting how the males are often a complete different color then the females in these unique little insects. Perfectly photographed with superb clarity and beautiful colors. Love the clean blurred BG. The vertical framing works out well in this composition. Well done!!
