Blood-wing damselflies


Recommended Posts



I have no idea what these are actually called, or if they even have a common name, but here's some cool damselflies. They were perched at the top of a 20ft wall over a river, and there were probably at least 12 switching out between sitting on the plant and flying. They were surprisingly bold- didn't care about me putting my phone 6 inches from their faces. I could probably have caught them by hand if I'd tried.

Not shown: the series of 10 photos taken from increasingly short distances because I had no idea how close I could get to them without scaring them away. Turns out, very close, but I've had damselflies spook from 7 feet away.
