Wow, I've never seen damselflies that small.
Vestalis damselflies in Malaysia are usually large, but shy.

Huh... means like a Dragonfly...!!
I failed to spot many Damselfly here due to very small size about 1 inch to 1 cm...!!
They disappears quickly in grass.

ID suggestion submitted, in West Malaysia, vestalis amoena and vestalis amethystina are very similar to it.
Except that this species does not have a bluish wing like them.
