As the water slips over and around the wet and gleaming rocks, a green summery canopy stretches overhead, diffusing the cloud-hidden sun through its myriad of leaves and bathing the entire forest in an ethereal glow.

The Design of a damselfly

Any time I look at a Dragonfly or Damselfly
I am struck by not just their beauty, but their wonderful design. Need some convincing about ID ? spend a good amount of time(spring through summer?)observing these creatures.

Are they not well made?
