I like the markings on this damselfly because it looks like a bandit mask.
Near a pond in SW Colorado.
Great photo and colors!
Thanks to dandoucette for the ID. And JeanC.Fisher, I entirely agree about their mating habits. Of course ours would probably seem odd to them, too. :)
So familiar! Yes, we have many, many of these here in Northern California where I live in Sonoma County! I have tons of shots of them (although none utilizing the obviously great lens you have, of course...) ;o) I even have video of them depositing their eggs! (Very "alien looking" mating habits, if you ask me! lol!)
This is a great shot! I'm thinking its either Enallagma cyanigerum or E. doubledayii.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enallagma
Fantastic macro shot! Very impressive. :D Great colours as well, we have a similar damselfly here in Europe. Very bright and eye-catching.
Thanks! I love damselflies but haven't had nearly as much luck getting closeup pictures since we moved to Colorado a few moths ago (from Arizona). But I'll definitely keep trying. :)
Wow! Good macro shot!
