Looking for Lunch

Saturday I saw this bluet, Enallagma species, looking for tiny morsals of living insects to eat.  It would hoover in place, then approach a stem and bite at what it saw.

This is a spectacularly beautiful damselfly.

    Great photo. For sure, Bluets are stunning and it is sometimes hard to identify them not only because there are 35 kinds of bluets in North America alone but because colours vary by age, gender, and habitat. Check out my posts on Bluets: http://thepalguy.com/?s=Bluet
