Great news my friends,
for the first time in a lifetime I was able to shoot these little critters.
If they're not flying you'll got nearly have no chance of seeing them.

These damselflies are the only kind that survives the wintertime in our region. Yes, they are frozen over the wintertime to be the first ones at the pond.
