Ebony Jewelwing

Calopteryx maculata


This damselfly had four wings and stayed in the shades of a wooded/swampy area close to my house. The photographs do not capture just how beautiful this arthropod really was, but I was hoping someone might be able to help me identify it for future reference.

They really sparkle. I'm hoping to get a cleaner shot soon now that I have it identified.

These are always nice to see. I find them around a slow moving creek in an Audubon park a few miles from my home. They really do look like jewelry, don't they?
