Certainly it is a Calopteryx, but virgo is a European species. It may be a ebony jewelwing (Calopteryx maculata), but start your search here to see if you can narrow down the ID: At any rate, it is a beautiful insect. We find them here in Minnesota along sun-dappled trout streams, and it doesn't get much better than that.

Calopteryx virgo ?
