This guy was TINY!!!! there was a spawn of dragonfly's this week, hundreds, multiple species, none of which would sit still... Is this a young dragonfly, or a damselfly... whats the difference between the two? Any tips for getting the bigger dragonflys to sit still... Cause I tried for hours to find one that had landed, but it appears they never land...
