While at the pond the first tiny find was this damselfly. Although very common it was a first sighting for me.
Eastern Forktail-Ischnura verticalis female.
After shooting this I moved along and found what I thought from a distance to be another damselfly. It was quite small but as I got closer I realized it was a tiny dragonfly.
This Elfin Skimmer-Nannothemis bella, also a female, is the smallest of the dragonflies here in the northeast and is a lovely combination of colors. Notable for resting with their wings down, it was a contributing factor for ID.
Sunday must have been ladies’ day as all the dragonflies and damselflies I saw were females. Lazy males must have been sleeping in somewhere.
