First Damsel of the Year ~ Camera-Critters #210

Lookee!!! LOOKee! LOOKEE what I found!!!

No, I didn't find a great deal on tailored sportsman breeches while shopping. I did, however, find and photograph my first damselfly of the year! If you know me, then you know that's HUGELY exciting for me! Yes, it will be even more exciting for me when I see and photograph my first dragonfly of the season (not to mention when I photograph my first LIFER dragonfly of the season). However, seeing the damselflies tells me I will soon see my dragonflies. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Can ya tell I'm excited? Probably not.

I never knew there were such things as damsel dragonflies, much less seen one! Thanks for sharing.

Wow, a damselfly. Good for you, Misty.
My husband insists he was bitten by a mosquito today. I don't really believe him, but I believe you. LOL
See you for CC tomorrow (I have so many: we went to the San Diego Zoo).


Excellent shot too!
I am so looking forward to the dragonflies as well myself. Just love he little guys.

A very sleek and slender damselfly. Nice!

Lina Gustina

It captured beautifully. My first time to know damselfly :)

Lovely shot. I guess the warm weather has definitely arrived. :)


A beautiful capture!


Nice find...and picture. I wonder if the forktails here can be orange like your Eastern Forktail.


You are way ahead of us. This is gorgeous. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for my first damsel or dragon.

I can tell! I'd be excited if I could ever manage to get even one shot of either a damsel or dragon. Whether they were a lifer or not. Heck, I'd be excited if I just knew the names of the varieties I see. I'm always happy to see and admire them though! Thanks for sharing your beautiful picture..and your enthusiasm...and for hosting the meme.

Such a delicate thing. I love to watch them skim across the water in our lake swimming pool. Haven't seen one yet this year. Spring must be too cool, but the water striders are out. - Margy

Great shot!


I'm with you! I saw my first butterflies today, Eastern Tailed Blues, I believe. I could also see Morning Cloaks way up in the trees. (The leaves are not out yet.) It's going to be a while before I get my dragons. But I'm with you and I certainly understand your excitement.


Great sighting and photos, Misty! I hope you are having a great weekend!


Oh how lovely!

(We still have snow over here..)


Nice capture! I actually saw a dragonfly last weekend, but he wouldn't stop long enough for me to get a decent shot. I'm excited, too! Love these critters.


I understand that you are happy about the first damselfly shot of the year. Beautiful captured!
