A day of damselflies

Last Saturday, I took a walk behind my sister's house on Eight Mile Creek in Anderson Twp., Hamilton Co. Went looking for Odes.

First, I saw many of these, but didn't know what they were

Until I saw it in a wheel

Ebony Jewelwings making love.

I love the males

Neon Green, then

Neon Blue

Also seen was this Powdered Dancer

Other Odes seen were Variable Dancer and Blue-fronted Dancers. I would not have bee able to ID the damsels on here if it weren't for Bill Hull's help and his wonderful site at http://www.mangoverde.com/ It is definitely worth checking out, as it has audio of birds and pics of birds, odes and lepids from around the world.
