Random photo: damselfly_Estero Bay salt marsh

This damselfly’s abdomen looks like it’s made of bamboo. And its eyes are chartreuse.

It’s fun taking pictures of dragonflies and damselflies. First I get a shot from a distance, when I first see the insect. I keep shooting as I sneak closer and closer. Sometimes I get lucky and the critter will stay still as I get really close. Then I can see all the colorful details on these miniature miracles.
