Default HELP ID unexpected guest

Hello everyone,
I just spotted a new unexpected specimen in my planted tank with shrimps and assasin snails.
While replanting I spottet this one:...
About 3/4" long, 1/8" thin. About the half of the size of cherry shrimp, for now at least
Purchased some plants in local big box store a few days ago. The kind in sealed liquid tissue cup and some subwasser in sealed plastic bag. Other than that, driftwood installed in tank was soaked outside until October-November. I dont expect any eggs would survive that long unchached, undetected...?

Pretty close: actually a damselfly. Dragonflies don't have those long flat gills at tip of abdomen. But yes it can eat baby fish and baby shrimp.
