Damselfly/Top Shot

Male familiar bluet (a pond damsel)

This is a damselfly found in southern Canada, most of the United States and into Mexico - this one living in a wetland area where I like to photograph birds.

I am linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

They look so damsel like, very delicate and fragile.

Very nice, we have decorative dragonfly's of all shapes and sizes around our house.

I've yet to photographically capture one of these, they are like Bella, they never stop.

Amazing shot! They are hard to capture sometimes as they are flighty. They certainly are strange looking up close too!

I love seeing dragonflies. They just seem so magical to me.

Great shot! This from someone who knows how difficult it can be to take photos of damselflies and dragonflies! ;b

Great composition!

Sue said...

Another great capture. They look kinda creepy up close though, the way you can sort of see through the body.

Interesting stuff.
