Bright before my eyes

This beautiful dragonfly caught my eye in the Northwest of Australia and I’ve included it in Becky’s squares challenge.

Although this specimen had to lose some wing and tail to fit the challenge criteria, can you decide if it is, in fact, the damselfly? – the eyes of a dragonfly are nearly joining on top of the head, but in the damselfly they are clearly separated and on either side of the head. Also, the wings of a dragonfly are not similar, with the back wings wider at the bottom, whereas damselfly wings are similar in shape.

There are other criteria, but from that, what do you think? I’m going dragonfly!
