Sedge Sprites # 55


Sedge sprites are exquisite, tiny little damselflies which we finally found just a few days ago. The colors should be more jewel like. The side of their thorax is tourquoise, a color I find hard to paint; and the top of their thorax is metalic emerald green -- another hard color. The pair is connected in a 'copulation wheel.' For more about this behavior, please go to my blog.

It is amazing Elva how Miss Nature gives us so many colors to explore. The emerald green on their little bodies look like gemstones.
Thank you,
Irina
