Forktail - Ischnura ramburii

Forktail - Ischnura ramburii
Opelika, Lee County, Alabama, USA
September 5, 2007
Believe these damselflies are forktails, perhaps Ischnura ramburii. Would appreciate confirmation or alternatives. John and Jane Balaban, would appreciate your thoughts.

You rang?!
Yes, we would agree with your ID. Perfect example of I. ramburii and the male-like color form of the female. What a lovely shot!

You rang?!
John and Jane: Thanks for answering the call! As always, I appreciate your help and nice comments.

We pasted it right to the info page
in the bottom row showing the damsels paired up.
