Lovely damsel fly!!


I was told the same thing about identifying them. Yours looks like it was carved from turquoise stone with some onyx insets;) So beautiful.


Kathleen, you've got it! These are so pretty and just glitter in the sunlight. Great photo. :)

What a great photo, Kathleen. Could that damselfly be resting on the back of a green dinosaur? Or a green elephant? Or... ;-)

PS - I'll bet Randy and Meg can help you out with dragonfly/damselfly ID! :-)

Lovely shot! Damselflies are among the most beautiful of insects, with their jewel-like colors. So graceful too.

Your photos are so good. Thanks for the up close of the blue damselfly. She is a beauty!


I think the coloring of the damselflies are so pretty. We get blue ones that look very similar to that one, but I don't know their "official" name.

Oh wow, s/he looks so pretty against that green leaf! Great shot. :)

Oh that is interesting about the wings. I love to identify insects in the garden...well except the nasty ones like yellow jackets, those I just like to squish!!! Kim
