Damsel


Damsel

The Vivid Dancer (Argia vivda) is in the Damselfly family, Coenagrionidae. The females are brownish but, on occasion will take on blueish tones. The 'dancers' (genus Argia) hold their wings above their abdomen whereas bluetets (a similar looking damselfly in the genus Coenagrion) hold their wings in repose by their abdomen.
