Dragonflies and Damselflies.

Does this help anyone I wonder, coz I have a heap of trouble wokring out the characteristics of each so I discovered this little thing....

"I flattened the fat dragon with a broad sword" helps me remember that the Dragonfly rests with its wings flat, is fatter than a damsel, and the rear wings are broader that the front.

Maybe "Chat up the skinny Damsel" likewise might indicate that the Damselfly is slimmer in the body, and rests with its wings upright.

Hope this helps somebody.
