Some call it the arm pit of NYC.
Not really a bug expert but these fellows were flying around at a nearby park and lake where I took my son to play. Wasn't really prepared for shooting them but I like this one frame (among many misses). Still learning the camera.

f/8 (I think), 1/180

From my fly fishing days in the last millennium I recall those are called "damselflies". Very similar to dragonflies, but they fold their wings upward when perched, whereas dragonflies lay them out flat horizontally.
