Damsel at rest

By cal9
An emerald damselfly at rest near a local lake. I felt very lucky to be able to capture him with his wings spread fully and being at such a symmetrical angle.

Never seen one of these before - just the blues and reds. As you say, good angle and unusual to see the wings splayed. Click!
