Emerald Damselfly by laetitiapetrussa

Emerald Damselfly

This is a Willow Emerald Damselfly (Chalcolestes viridis). I was so happy with my picture from yesterday that I went back to the pond during my break.
This one makes yesterdays photo look so sad. And I've made so many good ones. I chose the closest one with the sharpest eye for my project.
It's been a good couple of weeks for my photo bucket list!

@tjchapa @sailingmusic @themamafox @lstasel @beryl @jo13 @jillhempsall @otterz @tosee @yolanda @skjgraphics @nanderson @tracie8266 thank you so much for the lobely comments! It's the first timeI found dragonflies I could get so close to. I jus sat there, half in the plants while people walking their dogs looked strangely at me. Bonus; my shorts smelled like mint afterwards.

@taffy @genealogygenie @runningbk @jax365 @wearing0 @jborrases thank you so much guys for commenting! I'm surprised it stayed on the PP for this long. I was so happy to make this photo but there are many more wonderful 'bug shots' on here. I was afraid it would be drowned by all the other great shots.
