Ebony Jewelwing Damselfly

The Ebony Jewelwing Damselfly is a stunning insect. I’ve taken poor photographs of them each of the last three years at Beidler Forest and finally this year captured one at eye level and another in a spot of sun.

Access to this area is only from a boardwalk so there is not much you can do to change your angle.

The second one stayed put on this leaf, opening and closing his wings for a few seconds, creating a nice shadow on the leaf.
