Ebony Jewelwing Damselfly

order Odonata Zygoptera Calopteryx maculata


This Damselfly was iridescent blue-green-yellow with blue eyes and jet black wings. Watching it rest with wings parallel to back, then slowly stretch flat, then flutter a few times, then this one snapped them about half-way back and flat again.
