February 2015 - Northern Spreadwing Damselfly

Northern Spreadwing, Lestes disjunctus (male)
Northern Spreadwing, Lestes disjunctus
The wings of damselflies are usually held together above the body when at rest, but Spreadwing Damselflies are an exception to this rule. Damselflies are somewhat similar to dragonflies, but are much thinner, their four wings are identical and their eyes don't touch as you can see in this photograph.

For more information about these fascinating insects,
visit our Dragonflies and Damselflies Trivia Page.
