Damselfly and Minnows
An outing today to Camp Mohawk was mostly non-productive photo-wise, other than this damselfly on a log. When cropping it, I spied some minnows around the log. Didn't see them in the viewfinder!
Damselflies (suborder Zygoptera) are insects in the order Odonata. Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along, and parallel to, the body when at rest. Furthermore, the hindwing of the damselfly is essentially similar to the forewing, while the hindwing of the dragonfly broadens near the base. Damselflies are also usually smaller than dragonflies and weaker fliers in comparison, and their eyes are separated.
