    Not that I want to be picky about some extremely nice images but shouldn't the title be Damsel as in Damselfly? ;-)
    If you like my images I am very happy but please don’t nominate them.

    Thanks Grant

    You're right of course, but they are all in the big family of dragons and damsels.

    Here is the classification from "bugguide":
    Dragonflies and Damselflies (Odonata) » Damselflies (Zygoptera) » Narrow-winged Damselflies (Coenagrionidae) » American Bluets (Enallagma) » Boreal Bluet (Enallagma boreale)

    Maybe I should have named the titel "Little Dragon" to get a bit closer to the right scientific specification.
