Nice. Looks like the second fellow sustained some wing damage. Amazing how they can still fly around when damaged.

Yes, absolutely amazing. I didn't notice anything unusual about the way it was flying.

When I'm out birding, I see a ton of DragonDamselflies, and during the down time I'll take pot shots at them to see what I come up with. In this particular case, I snapped off two shots, and lucky I did, because each one was slightly shifted focus. So, I did a 2-photo focus stack in PS, and it came out perfectly  :p

Excellent shot. That's a Ebony Jewelwing - to me, the most beautiful of the damsels.

Thank you for an ID, they’re gorgeous, with a good name to go along with the beauty. I can see how this thread is as active as it is, there are so many species out there just in my area, and I don’t think I’ve seen a dull or boring one yet!

Like you, I enjoy shooting birds and adding bees/dragonflies/butte​rflies, etc. makes for variety. Some of the dragons can be tough to ID:-)

The ones we see flying around only live a few months at most. The majority fall prey to predators like fish and birds. So enjoy their beauty because it doesn't last long. :-( Here is some more info:

Good stuff, thank you for sharing. I truly love Dragonflies and Damselflies: at my favorite birding site, it’s super swampy, and you’d expect the mosquitos would eat you alive, right? Well, the immense Dragonfly population completely devours any mosquito, and as a result: no mosquitos (or biting flies)! It’s absolutely stunning: I’ve been walking, and see tiny bugs come at me from the shade, and out of nowhere Dragonflies swoop in and snatch the pests right in front of me. Like a personal bodyguard entourage :)

Welcome to the forum and that's a beautiful shot with excellent detail. Lee

P. S. If you have any bee or pollunator shots, post them here: :-)
