This weekend I traveled to my cottage to celebrate the Victoria Day long weekend and I was welcomed by an abundance of natural beauty. Although there were practically no mosquitoes or black flies I found that there was still a strong presence of other kinds of insects. The ones that i found most interesting were the Familiar Bluets.
Familiar Bluets are from the Damselfly family and there are around 35 various species of Bluets found throughout North America.
Damselflies can be found near or around water as they prey upon small insects and they lay there eggs along shorelines.
I was most intrigued by the brilliant shades of blue displayed on the Bluets. With the power of macro photography I was able to capture some of the detail of the Bluets.
