  1. Richard, great reads again! Thank you. About your damselfly.,my app tells me it is a fragile forktail, but the photo is rather small for the app to work with, I guess. Maybe the two are similar. I assume you have an insect ID app as well and have done some research, so you may be right.
    Nice pics!

  2. Ola-
    Fragile forktails are very common on the black marsh trail and I have identified them before. They are readily idenfiable by exclamation point markings on the thorax that are very distinctive. This was quite different even with a magnified higher resolution image . Thanks for continuing to follow the blog and commenting.

    PS: I have several guide books specifically for damselflies. Sometimes the aps are great, sometimes not.
