Remember last week I showed you the male ebony jewelwing damselfly?
Well, it's not a super good picture, but I got one of the female Calopteryx maculata.
At least you can clearly see the white spots on her wings. And note the "maculata" in the name? That means spotted, so that makes the scientific name sensible. Her body is plain black.
This is one of the really common damselflies. I wonder if I can get pictures of some of the little nervous ones next! At least with wildlife pictures one never runs out of possibilities.
