Snake Doctor
1 Attachment(s)
Many moons ago my fishing buddies called this fly a "Snake Doctor"
I like the refraction in the water.

I agree, interesting background you have captured.

Quite lovely. Also called a damselfly, I think.

It might be a male Ebony Jewelwing Damsefly.

I googled Ebony Jewelwing Damsefly, and according Mr. Google that's just what it is. Had I told my fishing buddies 50 years ago it was anything but a snake doctor, I would have been in the creek getting a close look at an Ebony Jewelwing Damsefly!!
