I don’t see many of these around here. In fact, this is only the second I’ve seen in as many seasons. They are quite striking, and like most of the larger damselflies, fly with an elegant, fluttering motion. At the end of the day though, they are still hunters, which means that they can move quickly when they want to. And that explains why I lost this one moments later and didn’t get a better photograph than this one!
