Slender Spreadwing damselflies (females)

Two female Slender Spreadwing damselflies (Lestes rectangularis) were spotted during a photowalk around a vernal pool in the forest at Huntley Meadows Park.

No. 1

No. 2

Notice the second individual is bluer in color. Coloration is variable, so it’s better to look at other field markers when making an identification.
