Teneral Eastern Forktail Damselfly

I found this Teneral Eastern Forktail Damselfly that had climbed up this plant after it had emerged from its nymph stage out of the pond. It is almost transparent in this stage, lacking a lot of its final coloring. Looking very bland it just hangs here as it’s wings are still limp. In a short time they will firm up and be able to fly off.
