Teneral Damselfly.

This Teneral Damselfly recently emerged from the nymph stage. It is an unsteady flier at this stage. But in this photo you can see the coloring is starting to come in and the wings are not as “glasslike” as when they first emerge. It’s almost transparent and not able to fly far. The body and wings are limp but they will firm up in a very short amount of time enabling it to fly off.
