Large Red Damselflies ovipositing (or trying to)

I've definitely got to put in some more hours at the ponds. I'm convinced there are great shots to be had of red damselflies perching on bright scarlet-pink lily flowers. Getting the insects sharply in focus while they're in tandem is hard because of the thin, elongated shape they make together.

  1. Hi, just one question. How do you know all the names of the insects and plants you take pictures of?

    I haven't read all of your posts so I don't know if you mentioned you're botanist or an entomologist or just look stuff up.
