Bluet Damselfly
Copyright © 2003 by Bill Scifres
One of the insect kingdom's most beautiful and interesting citizens is the Bluet Damselfly (Enallagma erbium).
This first cousin to the larger, more robust dragonflies is slender and sports clear wings with well-defined veins. The sexes will be easily separated by the bright blue hues of the male. Damselflies are thought to be heavily dependent on water, but they may be found almost anywhere.
