Female Eastern Forktail Damselflies After A Rainstorm

We had a storm with heavy rain a few days ago so after it stopped raining we went to Davidsons Mill Pond Park to look for interesting raindrops to photograph. Here are some raindrops with Female Eastern Forktail Damselflies. I was using an Olympus OMD-1 with a 100-300mm Panasonic lens @ 300mm (Full Frame Camera FOV Equivalant ~600mm).

Moving Wings – Female Eastern Forktail Damselfly

I noticed this Damselfly on the tip of a leaf that was hanging over the water’s edge.  I believe it is a Female Eastern Forktail Damselfly. I was using a 150mm Sigma macro on a Canon 7D. So I could not get closer, but thought it was still interesting because of the moving wings. I was surprised the wings had that much motion blur because I was shooting @ 1/250 @ f/4 for a smoother background.
