Dragonflies and Damselflies

Pin It

My camera and I have been out in the garden these days
stalking an illusive (and yes, elusive) paprika-red dragonfly which you know
I will post, with glee, when I get a photo. Until then, there seem
to be many others ready for their "walk-on" and willing to stay
still enough for me to shoot. The above photos are of damselflies
which are different from dragonflies in that, among other things,
they can fold their wings along the length of their long tails while
dragonfly wings remain perpendicular. Click here for more information.
And, as always, click on photos to see the exquisite details.
