[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an old stock. I took this shot almost four months back, i.e., in the month of August. I already had posted this species before . That photograph was taken in the month of June.

This time also, it was a bright summer day. And i found this damselfly besides the huge lake, adjacent to our apartment. The sun was hard, but still i couldn't ignore that stunning beauty.. this is one of the fascinating damselfly species that Tennessee has in its list. Can't stop loving those bright, blue eyes..

Well yes, this is a Blue-ringed Dancer (Argia sedula). and a male.

Thanks for viewing.

Hello dear Ruby

As a documentary shot this one probably can serve a good purpose, .... others may call it a snapshot ;), but people like me can even see the presence of your kitchen's backdoor in the photograph as a major destruction feature. Above all however, lets realize that we have a a wonderful Blue-ringed Dancer who cares mostly about his girls .... and that's the point Ruby :))) With those deep see Elvis like blue eyes who can resist!

Nice POV and tac sharp image. Like life, we can't always choose the back ground, but this damsel fly shows well because you managed your focus and orientation. Well done.

Good picture and a new species for me. Thank you for sharing it and congratulation.

Hello Ruby,
You can't be disappointed with a shot like this. The entire body is in sharp focus and the colors and markings are simply gorgeous.
I wouldn't be overly concerned about the bright blades of grass in the BG, as this would have been pretty hard to avoid on such a bright day. Great job!!
Hope you don't mind, but I would like to see what I can do with it in a WS.
