    Very nice Damsels. The plant looks like a thistle to me.
     
  3. Thanks Paul and I corrected the title :) 
     
  4. Ooh, Ebony jewelwings. Very nice!

    Second one is the female.

    Cheers,

    I love these shots! Where do go to find them.
     
  6. Thanks for the identification -- I'm not at all aware of the different names etc etc. But, I'm enjoying learning and taking photos for your folks to identify.

    I shot these in my backyard. We have a small creek that runs through our property and a vacant wooded lot beside of ours. Usually has some interesting stuff.

    Beautiful damsels and shots. They are Jewelwings - Calopteryx, just not sure which ones you have over there.
     
  8. Nice Damsels, David!
     
  9. Thanks everyone. This is a great community for a new guy.
     
  10. Nice! I'm still trying to get some of those jewelwings with their wings open. I had about 6 of them dancing around the other day in the perfect light and it was unreal. As it happened I was on my first semi on purpose dragon fly hunt and quickly saw how one could get addicted to these things.
