Hi, without being too technical here we go.
Damselflies are much daintier (average of 2 inches in length) and when at rest they generally have their wings closed and parallel to their bodies. There are exceptions to this rule i.e. the Emerald Damselfly.
They tend to have a fluttery flight.
Dragonflies are far sturdier insects and when at rest they keep their wings open (to varying degrees). They are much larger and have a purposeful flight. Larger examples can be seen gliding and hovering in search of prey.
