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. (wikipedia)

I found this Damselflies while wandering at paddy land in my village. This photo was taken in Aceh Besar, Indonesia.

Location : Geu Gajah, Aceh Besar – Indonesia. Camera Model Nikon D3100 Lens Kit + Raynox DCR-250.
