Damselfly .....

This is a Blue-tailed Damselfly ( Ischnura elegans ) and it decided to sit on my rather sandy big toe while I was on my sunbed by the pool in Fort Myers Beach, Florida.


They are very pretty little creatures, much smaller than dragonflies and can be distinguished from them by the fact that they hold their wings in line with their body when at rest.
