After a quick dawn shot this morning, I headed back to the Brickyard meadow to see what sort of dewy subjects I might find. There were plenty of Common Wood Nymphs once again and more dew drops…or maybe they should be called fog drops. At any rate, I was not expecting to see many insects on the wing at 60° and with everything wet. But there were a couple and the prize was this damselfly. There was also a cranefly I am pretty gassed over but I haven’t nailed the ID yet.
Despite having a few shots of the Common Wood Nymph from the other day I lined one up but was distracted, which I am easily, by a fluttering. It was this Female Slender Spreadwing- Lestes rectangularis landing on a convenient perch. The cool temperature must have caused her to sit for me as she didn’t move at all.
Another image that was worth the knee high soaking the meadow provided.
