Today, while fishing at the edge of a pond, I counted 12 small, red colored, Dragonflies that landed on my legs (I had shorts on) and my hand. Dragonflies can be differentiated from Damselflies as Dragonflies eyes are together, while Damselflies eyes are more separated. Also, Dragonflies extend their Wings outward when they land - Damselflies bring their Wings together, parallel or in a straight line with their back when they've landed.
Two of them were mating as they landed on my hand. They made the classic heart shape as the male's tail was attached and holding onto and over the females head. The female was also a more dull color of red.
This was my first experience having any Dragonfly land on me, much less twelve of them. I'm not sure exactly what species the Dragonflies were, but they were smaller Dragonflies - cute little guys and gals!
A final note. There are ~3,000 Species of Dragonflies in the World; however, they are decreasing in numbers due to loss of Wetlands Worldwide.
