#023 Swift Forktail Damselfly


This little damselfly is only about 1.3 inches long .... it takes a good telephoto lens and a good photo to draw it! I drew it much larger than life. Pen and ink plus watercolor in my journal.

For more about the damselfly go to my blog.

What a nice little damselfly. The colors you chose are just fitting for such a delicate creature.
