Damselfly (Zygoptera)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Damselfly (Zygoptera)

Damelflies are beneficial in both adult and larval stages as they control insect populations. In addition, larvae (naiads) are aquatic and feed on small fish and tadpoles and other aquatic life.

I’ve given up trying to identify blue damsels.
