Today was not a good day for insect photography–much too windy. A friend and I and my son Max went on an unsuccessful search for rare butterflies. We spent about six hours on the road, and went to a couple of prairie areas, but found some rain and cold weather. We only found one butterfly–a pearl crescent. I have those at home. In fact, I saw a couple, as well as a handful of other butterflies after we got home.
Dragonflies and damselflies have been more common this year, but it was still windy for photography. I found this damselfly, which is a female azure bluet, Enallagma aspersum.
