Definitely blue ones. I can't see the rest of it, there are a lot of them and you need to see the wings as well.


Stephenville, TX(Zone 8a)

It is a damselfly, but don't know which one. Maybe my DH will see this post and ID it for you. I'll mark the thread to watch.


Camilla, GA(Zone 8a)

We have all colors here, especially down around the pond.


Mesa, AZ(Zone 9b)

Yep, we have all manner of colors shapes and sizes of the dragons and damsels here, too.

St. John's, NL(Zone 5b)

I'd say a species from the genus Enallagma...commonly called Bluets.

Amelia Island, FL(Zone 9a)

That's amazing, thank you for all the info! It's the first time I've ever seen one. So pretty!

Austell, GA(Zone 7a)

I saw one in my yard and had to research it - one site called it a common damselfly - I thought - how can something so vivid be called common.

Faversham, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

We have a lot of them here also.

To tell dragonflys and damselflys appart is easy

Dragonflys cannot close their wings but if you look at you picture the damselfly can


Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6a)

Toledo, OH(Zone 6a)
