Whatever this is - it is a lovely capture of it Smile I get totally confused by all your different names for these insects - in South Africa they all go by one name Smile

Damselflies are so beautiful but so far this year I haven't taken one good shot of one.
I can seldom achieve a perfect sharp macro image without a tripod and liveview
but many member seem to manage sharpness with a higher ISO if your camera can
handle noise.
Your b/g is perfect but just a bit more light (higher ISO or + a fw stops compensation might help.
