Tell the Difference Between a Damselfly and a Dragonfly
from Insect Vista

The main difference between a damselfly and a dragonfly is when the insects are at rest, the dragonfly's wings are held away from the body (at 180 degrees) and the damselfly's wings are held close to the body.

Damselfly:  Wings held close to the body

Camera Settings:
Focal Length 180 mm
Exposure Time 1/160 sec
Aperture f/13
ISO Equivalent 100

Dragonfly:  Wings held away from the body

Camera Settings:
Focal Length 100 mm
Exposure Time 1/125 sec
Aperture f/16
ISO Equivalent 200

Newbie here!! Nice shots you have there sir ocninon! I wish suomeday i'd stumble upon warring damselflies like you did!!
Here's my share, all taken with a manual 70-210mm and the front element of a P250 "wagwag" minolta lens as a close-up lens> 1/60, f16 @ISO100 with onboard flash.
Hope you enjoy!!
Peace!

TFS Jordan and Welcome to Pipho!  Nice capture, timing and composition. 

According to my research (correct me if im wrong) The male (top) has clasped her at the back of the head with his tail and she (lower) brings her genital aperture in contact with his reproductive organs.  When mating has finished the female lowers her abdomen, the male still holds on to her as he does not want her to mate with another male.

Damselfly Antennae
« Reply #28 on: March 24, 2008, 05:56:08 AM »
Did you know that..

Like all insects, damselflies have 6 legs, 2 antennae, and 3 body parts.  Damselfly antennae are very short, and cannot be seen without close inspection.

Thanks for sharing Albert!

Trivia ulit about Dragonfly....

Each eye of a dragonfly has 30,000 lenses.  (Wow, sana ganun din ang lenses ng digicam natin).

The Australian dragonfly can reach speeds of 36 mph (58 km/h) in short bursts and average 24 mph (39 km/h) over longer time.

Thanks for the comment sir Ocninon! All along we (together with friends and officemates) thought that the said female is a dominatrix ;)

    My officemates were amused/delighted/held at awe not because of my shots but of the new and wonderful world of macro! Seeing those small details in the "towato" ( ilocano for dragonfly), everyone agreed there's beauty in small things. Now they see nature in a different way. And that made those countless hours taking those pictures (on my knees!) worth it!!
   
    Thanks ulit sir..
