Damselfly by Murray Clarke: Damselflies are similar to dragonflies "Happy New Year!

Dragonfly covered in Dew; and sometimes we think we have things hard, having to wait things out at times.

A blue damselfly. The difference between damselflies and dragonflies is that the damsels fold up their wings while perched. Dragonflies keep them open.

Peek-a-bug! Eyes can see you!..This damselfly thought it had cleverly hid itself behind a blade of grass at a British lake - but it failed to realise its eyes could be seen poking out either side. The bright blue bug concealed its two-inch-long body and transparent wings by clinging onto the grass with its black legs..But photographer Tony Flashman spotted the common blue damselfly's piercing eyes at Fordwich Lakes, Kent

Even insects feel shy sometimes. Deal, Kent-based photographer Tony Flashman captured this awesome image of a bashful damselfly playing peek-a-boo from behind a blade of grass in the meadows at Fordwich Lakes, near Canterbury, Kent. “‘This little fly.

Helicopter Damselfly ~ I love dragonflies and damselflies; their my spirit animal!

The macro foto of this little guy is amazing. You can see all the details and the colors of his eyes fits really well with the green blurred background.

There are plenty of streams and waterfalls in the upland areas of Evia and we found a lovely, shady waterfall by a spring, just past the village of Platanistos.  At first we thought there were lots of blue butterflies, dancing over the water and then realised they were gorgeous blue-green damselflies.  I'm not sure of the exact species, so id would be welcomed.    I couldn't get close enough to use my macro lens, so these were taken with the 100-300 and some aren't quite as sharp as I'd…

Greek Damselfly, damselflies can be found in freshwater habitats from temporary pools to waterfalls, but individual species occupy only habitats within a certain range of water speeds. IT'S SOOOO BEAUTIFUL! LOOK AT IT!

I have always loved that when they mate they create a heart shape. Amazing creatures.

All creatures great and small in our ever popular animal gallery. Two dragonflies forming shape of a heart as they mate!

I love dragonflies and damselflies. You can tell the difference when they rest on a plant. The dragonfly will keep his wings open, while the damsel fly closes hers against her back. I also think the damsel fly looks more delicate! Azure Damselfly

You can tell the difference between a damselfly and a dragonfly by how they rest on a plant or flower. The dragonfly will keep its wings open, while the damsel fly closes its against their back. Damselflies also look more delicate!
