This damselfly is a bluet species and probably Hagens, but it is very difficult to tell without magnification of its tail end. Photographed July 16th, I did some post processing in PS using dry brush to give it a bit of a painterly quality.

Bill, congratulations on a superb shot. Damselflies are notoriously hard to photograph, given their minute size and their extreme skittishness. I love the blue and black on green, the dof you achieved, the intricate details you captured on this tiny insect. Very well done!
Thanks so much for you view and comments Bonnie. I do a lot of photography of dragons and damsels and have exhibited my “Dragons and Damsels” series in Ontario and Minnesota galleries and museums.
Beautiful work, nice and sharp, well done!!
Thanks for looking and commenting. Much appreciated Marvin!
This is really nice and I’m sure, like Bonnie said, damselflies must be hard to capture. Very nice.
Thanks for the comment. Actually damsels are rather easy to photograph since they fly very short distances and generally sit low to mid range in the vegetation. They most often stay sitting for a long time if not spooked.
Absolutely amazing! These damselflies are quite fast! Love the contrast in color as well. Excellent work!
As always, thanks for stopping by and commenting Joanne.
This is really an extremely amazing shot – congratulations! Love the contrast of green background w. the damselflies’ colors. Stunning.
