Our damselflies

So far, we've seen a damselfly in the Broad-winged category and one in the Pond Damsel category, but we haven't seen any of the Spreadwings category (at least that we've identified). (And here are our dragonflies.)

I've identified some of these with the help of BugGuide.net and others with the help of Stokes' Beginner's Guide to Dragonflies.
