Big Bluet

Enallagma durum

I’ve been meaning to look for these around Jamaica Bay for years. Hadn’t gotten around to it. But last week as I was walking down 37th Street towards Fort Hamilton Avenue, I paused at a tree pit filled with various spontaneous plants. This caught my eye. It didn’t look familiar. Once back among my resources, I realized it was a Big Bluet. Now the first record on iNaturalist for Kings Co.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I wonder what series of events and conditions made this intricate appearance advantageous. Surely we can’t imply an aesthetic sense to such a small brain. Or, can we?

    A work of art; a chrome-like appearance. Super image!
