Damselfly ~ Desert Firetail (Male) by 

Taken in Tucson,Arizona using a Canon Powershot SX110IS

Thanks to Jim Johnson for your help with the identity!

Flight Season mar.19 -Dec.18
Distribution Throughout the region.

Although its name suggests a desert dweller, the Desert Firetail may be found along shady mountain streams or at pools surrounded by luch woodlands. In the Southwest they are often found around numerous livestock ponds, weedy or grassy stretches of slow moving water, marshes, etc. You aren’t likely to misidentify the small, slender, cherry-red males (females are tan but are usually found among the males).

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
