Kerri,

Great job on the jewelwing, it is a male, females have a white stigma. I have seen a couple this year but only one at a time.

Beautiful image, Kerri! We have them all over our property & I've been photographing them too. Not an easy capture. Great job!

Cool! Nice Shot!

Becky and I saw a black Jewelwing of some sort yesterday. Ours had a white dot on the wing. The little bugger flew onto a sapling that fluttered in the wind and I couldn't get the shot! It even let Becky steady it's purch!

This is beautiful! You must spend a lot of time just waiting for the right shot. When I've tried to shoot butterflies I spend hours just watching my flowers and then of course sometimes missing the shot. Diane

Just amazing Kerri! Nice catch!!!

Great catch, Kerri! Those little things sure are hard to capture too. Can't say I've ever seen one before but I'm on the look-out for bugs! Just so long as they aren't scary ones ; )

Hi Kerri,
I haven't been around much the last few weeks - running to VA and back for Grandbabies time. :)
So many unique shots I've missed.
This little guy is gorgeous but I LOVE the previous Pretty Face - awesome detail!
Great shots all the way down the page. :)

Beautiful capture Kerri (thanks for identifying it on my blog and explaining the difference between dragonflies and damselflies). I agree with difficulty to capture since they move so much.

I wish so badly I could see and photograph one of these! They're gorgeous, and you captured it wonderfully!
