Before Becoming Damselfly

I do not know very much about dragonflies and damselflies, but I know that they live a metamorphosis like the butterflies before being shown in all their splendour. I saw this specimen this afternoon on the cemented edge of a pond in the park close of at home. In the WS you can see a large profile view. I think that this is a nymph of a danselfly, but which one? I dont know.

p.s.: I saw Lucy this morning. She still transported food from a den to the other. She seemed stressed and thins down. In spite of my efforts I did not find the second den but I know that it is close to the race track. This morning I contacted Ecomuseum to inform them of this situation. I am anxious for the future of these foxes.

Thank you for looking.

Hello Luc,
this is actually a Water Stick Insect!
A great shot and I love the limited DOF.
Well done,
