River Jewelwing

By taggart  
River Jewelwing
Calopteryx aequabilis. 2 inches. Female

A large damselfly seen mainly near northern streams and rivers --one who perches occasionally. Note her long legs and divided wing colors!
The white spot at the wing tip indicates that this is a female--

So glad you all liked the hydrangea--Thank for your votes, comments and awards!
