Odonata is an order of insects, encompassing dragonflies (Anisoptera) and damselflies (Zygoptera). The word dragonfly is also sometimes used to refer to all Odonata, but the back-formation odonate is a more correct English name for the group as a whole.

Les odonates ,ou libellules regroupent les deux sous-ordres des demoiselles (Zygoptera) et des libellules stricto sensu (Anisoptera)

Fabulous. I love how it hangs on the twig, its eyes wide with surprise as though it can't quite believe it's possible.
