The pond is starting to get very active. Between the usual varieties, and the occasional type stopping by, we are seeing a diverse group of dragonflies and damselflies. Here are a few of our usual damselflies, but I liked the compositions. For the opening photo for this post, I liked the shadow cast from the Bluet Damselfly and the yellow leaf it was sitting on. For the next, I liked the reflections and colors. These damselflies are only a little over an inch long, so they can be challenging to photograph. If you go out early, look for them in the grasses or bushes close to the water, before it warms up and they fly out to hang around the pond and eat bugs. Also look for them after a rain, with raindrops on or around them being so small, it makes the water drops seem very large.
