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. Damselflies are also usually smaller than dragonflies and weaker fliers in comparison, and their eyes are separated. This blue-tailed damsel is enjoying a rest after a summer sun shower. I took this in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ USA. I used the Nikon D3100 and the 85mm macro lens.
