Orange Bluet

Hard to get damselflies in focus at this scale and angle. I usually get the face and thorax crisply focused. But here, the distinctive 9th segment, all orange, comes through the sharpest. There are ten abdominal segments on a damselfly, and patterning on them can be key to identification.
