Artist's Description

A Spreadwing damselfly (Family Lestidae) which was attracted to an outside light of our home in Jansenville in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
’n Waterjuffer onder ’n buitelig in ons tuin in Jansenville.

The damselfly is a primitive flying insect, similar to the dragonfly but smaller, measuring between three and five centimetres in length. They are generally green, but can be yellow-brown, brown or black. It gets its name from the way its wings spread out when it is resting. The spreadwing is a carnivorous predator that often catches small insects in flight. It has two large compound eyes which give the spreadwing a wide field of vision. It spends the majority of its life as a larva in ponds or streams, hunting aquatic insects. Spreadwings are widespread in Africa and other parts of the world.

Naaldekokers behoort tot die orde Odonata, terwyl die waterjuffers (damselflies) tot die orde Zygoptera behoort. Waterjuffers het ook twee paar dun vlerke, kort voelhorings en ’n lang lyf. Die waterjuffer is delikater gebou as die naaldekoker. Altwee pare vlerke is eenders gevorm en vou gewoonlik terug bokant die liggaam wanneer die waterjuffer rus. Sy groot, uitstaande oë lê wyd uitmekaar en steek soos knope aan weerskante van sy kop uit.
