Damselflies (suborder Zygoptera) are insects in the order Odonata. 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.

    This must be the best macro I have ever seen of an insect such as this. Wonderful shot (and description good too)

  • Thank you Lezvee, this little fella landed on the guy rope of my gazebo and I dropped my hot dog jumping up to get the camera.

    Outstanding macro Yampi – every detail is razor sharp

  • Thanks Mattie, I don’t often attempt macros, far too fiddly for me, but as he was sitting so nicely I thought he was worth a click
