        I can give you a few suggestions for some of your pictures ,just from the little info Iv'e found .

        Hope it is some help, -

        No1 I am afraid there are too many similar species of Damselflies .

        No2 possibly Anatya sp.

        No3 Micrathyria sp  maybe M. ocellata.

        No4  possibly Sympetrum gilvum or same family.

        No5  Erythodiplax sp ,I can't find the exact species.

        All these species occur in the Amazon region ,but I don't know if specifically

        about Columbia.

        Good luck .

            Hi Aullador ,what a fabulous beetle ,I think it is a Fungus Beetle -Erotylidae-  (Cypherotylus species).

            The golden dragonfly is probably Perithemis mooma and the other dragonfly could be Orthermis aequilibris

            or O.discolor.

            A useful website to look at is -odonata.Bogfoot.net
