The following photo shows a male Eastern Forktail damselfly (Ischnura verticalis) spotted along “Great Blue Heron Trail,” Accotink Bay Wildlife Refuge, a 1,200 acre preserve located at Army Garrison Fort Belvoir, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. Eastern Forktails are somewhat similar in appearance to Fragile Forktail damselfies (Ischnura posita).
