I was just able to identify my bug as a Fragile Forktail Damselfly. I didn’t see any pictures of this species on your site, so thought you might like it. It’s supposed to be fairly common on the East coast.
Thank you so much for sending us your photograph of a Fragile Forktail Damselfly, Ischnura posita. According to BugGuide the Fragile Forktail Damselfly can be identified because of the “Pale shoulder stripes resemble exclamation points—true of both sexes.” The marks are clearly visible in your photograph.
