This is one of the several damselflies I photographed during my stay at my uncle’s a few months ago. It’s a male Golden dartlet, scientific name – Ischnura Aurora (although it will probably change soon) as documented on the wikipedia page. It really was a pain digging up the name from the Internet. For documentation purposes, I’ve licensed in under the creative commons attribution share alike 3.0 license. It is also available in Wikimedia commons. This damselfly is found mostly along ponds, which was the case in the backyard. One thing I will say again as I said in the dragon knight, is that these are really hard to shoot. They DO NOT like to sit still.
