River Jewelwing at the creek

This is a damsel fly, as opposed to a dragon fly. A damsel fly keeps its wings more together above its body; a dragonfly keeps its wings flat out or below its body.

I think River Jewelwing is one of the most beautiful names I have learned.

The white dots on the wings of the damsel fly perched on the blade of grass below show that it is female.
