Held its wings spread similar to a dragonfly (but is clearly a damselfly).

That way of holding the wings spread is characteristic of the family Lestidae, spreadwings--good observation. I think it may be either a female or immature male Great Spreadwing (Archilestes grandis), but I'm not 100% sure.
