De nada, no problem. Yo vine de 10 años a los EE.UU. asi que no me se mucho los nombres comunes. Yo tampoco soy sientifico, ni nada por el estilo, pero me encata saber de la naturaleza, y si mientra que mas uno toma fotos y hace esto mas aprende.

English isn't also my first language so I don't know most of the names, you know? but I'm learning a lot!

It's a Damselfly, one of the Forktails, I think it is either a Rambur's (Ischnura ramburii) or a Desert Forktail (Ischnura barberi)
Here on the desert's page there are some ID tips for both:
