Thanks for the link, Daniele!
I hear you on the slow connection.
I'm surprised mine works today.

I think I got this fellow now.

Thanks too, for helping, sttweets!

Nicole you may want to try your luck there:
Don't be misled by the site's name: its has both European dragonglies and damselflies. I'd try myself but I'm using a very slow connection at the moment.

I don't know about this. The black markings on the body are largely missing (could that fade?) and I can't see that' U' marking they are talking about on that wiki page. The back of this fellow's abdomen looks different too (but that might be due to reflection?).
