Fragile Forktail damselfly (male)

Ischnura posita


The Fragile Forktail damselfly is black and light green. The top of its thorax is black with two distinctive light green exclamation points. Editor's Note: I spotted several damselflies at Huntley Meadows Park on 21 April 2014, the first "home grown" odonates I've seen this year.
