Clamp-tipped Emerald

I was lucky to get this Clamp-tailed Emerald. My field guide tells me that they hunt along the forest edges in shady areas and over fields. They generally perch in the vegetation high in the trees. I found this one at eye level.

So gorgeous. I've been trying to get better images of these lovely creatures. Perhaps some day one as beautiful as yours Steve. Carol

Okay. I will now have to go out and try again. Really nice, Steve. My first try I posted this morning. They just wouldn't land. But it all worked out anyway.

A logical reason for the species name, for a change Steve.

Always in awe of your dragonfly images, Steve. I can never, ever get good shots of them. Beautiful!!!
