[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Damselflies (suborder Zygoptera) are insects in the order Odonata. Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be differentiated 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, caudal to the connecting point at the body. Damselflies are also usually smaller, weaker fliers than dragonflies, and their eyes are separated.

Great sharpness.

Hallo Francisco
Outstanding shot, with pin sharp detail, brilliant colours and excellent exposure. Just a pity that the end of the body is not in the shot.
Thanks for sharing a lovely macro. Best regards.
