Yesterday was hot and muggy. I wanted to go someplace and photograph critters but the weather was not good for what I was trying to do. Some butterflies were flying but were not nectaring for the most part. Mosquitoes, heat, and sweat interfered with my concentration.
Finally I went up to The Ledges State Park and found a small area along Pea’s Creek that wasn’t too crowded with people. I watched ebony jewelwings as they flitted along the banks and over the water.
This is a female.
This seems to be a male.
The flights were about mating, or fighting about mating.
The short little flights were fun to watch as the damselflies dashed about in the sun.
