  1. I can't seem to find these in my new book. The closest pic is a skimming bluette but even that is wrong I think. Got prey in one pic I saw later.

    I really like #2, You caught him with him mouth full.:biggrin:
    Too bad the tail got cut off in the first one...
     
  3. Nice shots, Threecats!

    I could try to look ID later...
     
  4. Yeah I saw that tail missing at home and was so upset. Is it ethical to clone one on? I can get back again cause I found these were easy tripod up very close with the 90 macro.

    Yes Jukka an id would be great. If it helps they were taken at a small stream, they were about 1 1/2 in long (4cm) and there were also as many that were mostly brown about the same size but never perched in that spot so I kinda neglected them

    Nice shots and a beautiful damselfly. I thing i may be a Blue-fronted Dancer - Argia apicalis.
     
  6. That's exactly right Torben! I don't know how I missed this in my new Stokes book. I must have passed that pic 10 times looking.:redface: Same length and the pic of the female looks the same as well. Thanks
