Closely related to the Dragonfly is.... Today's Bug, the Damselfly!
This one is called a Bluet Damselfly. They like to hang out in grassy areas by the water, as I illustrated here. The males are blue, and the females are can be brown, greenish brown, or blue as well.
So what's the difference between a Damselfly and a Dragonfly? Are they the same?
There are many differences, but one of the main differences is that Dragonflies do not have the same hinges on their wings as Damselflies and therefore cannot put their wings together when at rest, as Damselflies do. Damselflies cannot fly as quickly as Dragonflies. Damselflies' eyes are located closer to the sides of its head, whereas a Dragonfly's eyes are more toward the front of his face.
