This is my entry for the 7 Days Steemit Macro-Photography Challenge by @flamingirl. This is a damselfly. Distinct from a dragonfly in a couple of ways. Firstly the position of the eyes. A dragonfly has eyes that almost meet each other whereas a damselfly has obvious distance between the eyes. Also a damselfly folds its wings parallel to its body when it lands rather than a dragonfly whose wings are always perpendicular to its body when at rest.


This was taken with my Canon Powershot SX60 HS
No editing or colour correction was done on this photo. It’s just as nature made it.

Thanks @flamingirl for your wonderful macro photo challenge!

Photos with a great focus like this are so special, since those who see it can admire all the details of such tiny insects. The excellent photography and aside from that, a little knowledge for us.

Thanks very much for commenting. It’s actually a damselfly not a dragonfly 😉


The look similar :P I rarely see them in my country, but when I visited India I was afraid at the beginning lol But they are very beautiful and my cats loved to hunt them. But dont worry they never caught one :)


Cats do love to chase such things it’s true. Mine to got up to such antics 😉
