Newly emerged damselfly

I found this newly emerged female Azure bluet in dappled shade. It perched nicely while I snapped away, as the filtered light grew and faded:

The males have the pretty blue color, but I caught this female at a moment she looked her best.

    Loved your damselfly image! I am a retired biology professor and amateur photographer. I absolutely love your macro work! What type Canon body do you have? lenses? focusing rail? Can I email you directly?

    • Thanks for the kind words. I use a Canon 5DMkII, macro lenses, focus rail, and a tripod. There’s more of that information on my “about” page, and a video that shows me at work on images. I welcome email…
