Six different damselflies in an hour....
Posted By: Heinrich Lohmann, 07-07-2009, 10:24 PM

....that's what I found on the return trip in Northern Ontario. I pulled into a rest area along the highway by a small lake, opened the car door and closed it just as quick. The air was full of mosquitos and many other flying critters but after dowsing myself in insect repellent it was bearable but still got stung quite a bit. Anyway I also found all these damselflies.

Familiar Bluet

A Bluet


Eastern Forktail


Eastern Forktail

Ebony Jewelwing (male)

This last one is not sharp but I had never seen one before and only got one shot at him before he departed and would not come back.

All with K20D and DFA 2.8 100 mm macro. Fill flash on most of them.

Comments are always welcome and appreciated
