Vivid Dancer

Argia vivida

The Vivid Dancer is a kind of damselfly. You can tell it is a damselfly, and not a dragonfly, by looking at the position of the wings when the insect is resting. Damselflies fold their wings over their body, while dragonflies hold their wings outstretched. Also, if you look at the eyes you’ll see that damselfly eyes are set far apart, while the dragonfly’s eyes are so close together it looks like it has only one eye.
Dancers are usually found near water. They eat mosquitoes and flies, so they are helpful to humans.
