Well I finally got the other damselfly shots cleaned up and uploaded. I also found a cooperative beetle, These things are all over the place, but normally they will drop down into the grass and hide before I can get a shot.



Peek-a-boo!



"If I hide Behind this blade of grass, he wont see me"

Thanks for the comments! I'm really pleased with how these damselfly shots have turned out. I just wish there were more of them around. After digging through tons of damselfly descriptions I was finally able to ID these, they are Desert Forktails (Ischnura barberi).

That's a good name for a damselfly living where you do. I wish you could come around here. We have a lot of them. The prettiest ones live in wet areas in the woods and are broadwinged and flitter instead of zooming.
