Macro Damselfly

I realize the geological blogging has been rather light around these parts lately – just one more day of “fluff” posts… Here’s a damselfly, photographed close-up last Thursday along Route 340 south of Elkton, Virginia.

There were also some rocks there… more on them tomorrow.

  1. I have this old Eyewitness Book about insects that has some lovely macro photos of a damselfly nymph metamorphosing into an adult

  2. Hi Callan,

    A friend of mine identified your damselfly as a Fragile Forktail. Notice the “excalmation mark” on it’s sholuder.
    Good find.
