As You Find Them

While out with my camera, looking at the Yellow Cone Flowers, I happened to see the female Eastern Forktail damselfly. I quickly chaanged my point of focus and managed a few shots of her before she sensed me and flew off.

This is how one usually sees these critters on my patch!

Your quick reactions rewarded you with a lovely shot of the damselfly, so perfectly perched on the long leaf running parallel to its body.

Great timing, Jenn. I like this somewhat deeper DOF -- allowing us to recognize the GB flower without it distracting.
There is a real theme going on here with the leg "hairs" repeated on the green leaf. A very interesting shot -- especially considering how uncooperative your model was behaving.
Nice diagonal comp. as well.

Great diagonal leaf with my favourite insect

in this lovely nature shot.
