Dragonfly Nymph
October 1, 2007


Yesterday, I went for a walk and stopped at Flat Branch Creek where I noticed a dragonfly nymph crawling on underwater plants. I returned with my camera today, figuring I didn’t have much of a chance of relocating the nymph, but instead found about half a dozen of them. They are active predators, not sit-and-wait predators.

I’ll update this post when I have a positive identification.

Hi Donna, your macro photography is superb. I really like this photo of a nymph! I enjoy seeing the work of fellow enthusiasts. I have been taking photos of wildflowers and insects for about 10 years. I just started a new blog where I am listing information about some of the insects, wildflowers, etc. It is at http://natureatcloserange.blogspot.com
