Female Damselfly (Myristica Sapphire)

This is female Calocypha laidlawi or myristica sapphire is a species of damselfly belonging to the family Chlorocyphidae that usually found swinging around the stream. Indeed, I saw a lot of this damselfly inhabit the forest near the river and this one was actually found perching on the twig near the concrete stairs. Seeing that, I decided to take its pictures with a DSLR from a distance range. Since it has smaller and slender body, I managed to look for possible angle so that it could be taken properly. This species is regarded as beautiful damselfly that mostly live throughout tropical countries. Look like a little dragonfly but it tends to be classified into damselfly. By the time I saw it has dark eyes with colorful body, which gave me another reason to stay little longer playing with the click. After spending some time, I was finally able to capture some pictures of these two fascinating species of winged insect.
