A few Blue-tailed Damselflies used the broad leaves of the Iris plants as perches.

    1. Ah, I like the shadows, too! You may have noticed from my post “The Iris Patch” that there were limited options for where I could stand — I was happy to get light in the right direction.

  1. Beautiful shots, Ellen. It was definitely worth clicking on the shots to see all of the detail that you were able to capture of these beautiful little damselflies.
