06.17.2022 Sedge Sprite

Lost in the fun and excitement of shooting the Golden-backed Snipe Fly was this colorful damselfly.  I would have found it eventually but doing all my backing up today I came across it.  Another first.  Good season so far.

Sedge Sprite- Nehalennia irene shot with the 180 doubled.

    The ‘edges’ suggest this sprite might be perched on a sedge. Is that how they got their name? It’s amazing how many shades of green can be found in the image.

    • You suggest correctly. “Sedges have edges”. There are a couple of other “sprites’ besides this and the river faeries. I don’t know whether they prefer sedges for perches or if this was just a coincidence. The shadows made for a nice varied green background.

    Really great work on such fine detail!
    This sort of green could become my favorite color, too.

    Given its color I could see this one blending in fairly well from a distance. I love the metallic look to the body.
