Red DRAGONFLY: White-faced, cherry-faced or ruby meadowhawk
D is for dragonfly and/or damselfly
Ah! Lets leave winter for a few minutes and look back to the past summer when dragonflies and damselflies hunted the wetlands of central Ontario.
I love how they hang onto twigs waiting for smaller tasty insects to happen by.
Blue DRAGONFLY: Blue Dasher
They each appear to have a strong power of concentration.
Blue damselflies: bluets
These damselflies had something else on their minds.
Many thanks to my friend Paul who identified the widow skimmer for me and also made me question whether the red dragonfly is a white-faced, cherry-faced or ruby meadowhawk.Next time I need to take more photos!
