Not that I want to be picky about some extremely nice images but shouldn't the title be Damsel as in Damselfly? ;-)

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. :)
