Eyes of Fire

I often walk along the shoreline at my cottage to seek out interesting animal observations; whether it be an amphibian, a bird, or an insect. One of my recent sightings was of a Orange Bluet (damselfly).

There are over 35 kinds of Bluets in North America alone and are commonly found very close to water. To see my older post on Familiar Bluets click here. I was most amazed at the colour of these insects and I found that in one day I had come across more than 6 different colour variations of Damselflies.

About The Pal Guy

Ever since the moment I got my first camera I was bit by the “shutter-bug”. My love of nature has become a constant theme of my photography along with architecture, sights and destinations.

  3. awesome shots and a terrific blog ….Tim

  4. Great pics! Makes me wish I was there

  5. Damselflies are delightful. Someone near us must have installed a wildlife pond recently as suddenly this year we are getting small red damsels in our garden. I am pleased. Nice post! I like the way you start with a picture of the habitat.

  6. I would have just called this one a dragonfly…. hmmm… another new think I learned today. I love taking pictures of insects… challenging- but when you get a few good ones…it’s awesome! Your pictures are lovely!
