The latest damselfly

Here's an image of the latest odonate to show up on the place...a male Fragile Forktail, Ischnura posita.  Notice the "exclamation points" on its dorsum.   The book says they're yellow-green, but against the green of a Water Plantain, they looked bright yellow to me.   Some forktails hold still a long time, allowing the photographer to improve the shot, but this one was jumpy and flew every time I twitched...and it did not return to its previous perch.
