  1. What a great shot, and it shows why these little creatures are such effective predators. Why use insecticides when one can have damselflies instead?

  2. OH my gosh – he has hairs on his mouth! Just amazing. I don’t even want to know how long this picture took you. You must have stayed very still!

    1. I was surprised the damselfly allowed me to get so close to get the shot! You know, my hands shake a little and I have to hold my breath, keep perfectly still, get the focus, and add some luck and the shot comes together. Thank you for your comment πŸ™‚
