Damsel Flies

These beautiful insects are common around my lake, fast of flight they sometimes land on water reeds or other plants to rest or feed on something they have caught.  This is a useful link to information about both Damsel and Dragon Flies, and the differences between the two for anyone who might be interested to know a bit more.  One of these photos (#6902) shows a green eyed Damsel Fly eating a larvae of the same species.



  1. Really lovely! Lucky you, having a nice and warm summer now…. Here it is dark, cold and right now quite ugly, the snow has melted and it’s been raining for days….
    Happy New 2013!
