08.07.2022 Dewy Damsel

Yesterday morning’s visit that found the gentians also offered a nice colorful damselfly.

Eastern Forktail- Ischnura verticalis -female

I was surprised that she could fly around, I watched her fly until she landed on the grass stalk, and not lose those water drops, especially the one balanced on the wing edge.

    I consider myself lucky to get a damselfly shot. To have one with a dewdrop on the knife’s edge is even cooler.
