Damselflies are similar to dragonflies but are smaller. According to wikipedia, damselflies are known from the lower Permian, at least 250 million years ago. Damselflies, are feeding on flying insects. I spent many mornings on the water bank to watch these wonderful insects. I admired their ‘dance’ over the water. I noticed that they love the sun. They always rested on plants in the sunlight. The most interesting thing seemed to me that during mating, the body of the dragonflies took the heart shape. Did you notice that? I dont know wery much about damselfly. I just love to take picture to these beautiful insects.
