[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Order (Orden): Odonata
I donít know the taxonomy of this insect, but is important to note that dragonflies and damselflies are often mistaken for each other, the difference: damselflies can fold or close their wings over their back and parallel to their body. Dragonflies cannot do this, they keep their wings open.
La diferencia de estos insectos con las libelulas, es su capacidad de cerrar las alas sobre su cuerpo, mientras que las libelulas siempre tienen las alas abiertas.
