Thank you Michael! I didn't see where you had mad a suggestion. I love finding different dragonflies and damselflies.

Great shot of a Fragile Forktail. This is one of my favorite damselflies to identify because it is very easy. It is the only one in the southeast with an exclamation point on its thorax! We have them in Tennessee...but I usually don't see them this bright green.
