Different variety of damselfly

Different variety of damselfly
I don't know what kind it is, but I bet Roy does!

In the UK my first guess would be a female red-eyed damselfly, but you may well have totally different species in the States.

Thanks. The common (and even scientific) taxonomy of insects does seem to differ by continent. I've spent some time trying to find out if the broad-winged damselflies in North America are called the somewhat prettier "demoiselles" here as they are elsewhere.

Then, of course, there are regional names. For instance, in parts of the south the dragonfly is known as the "snake doctor."
