Western Forktail
Ishnura perparva

~Western Forktail
Beautiful young female Western Forktail at Garr Ranch on Antelope Island. I was torn between the blue-fronted dancer
and the western forktail but it seems the dancer is not known to inhabit Utah (so far). The colors and markings seem right
and the forktail is found in Utah.

~Western forktail damselfly
This tiny damselfly's real name could be Twiggy.  What a perfect disguise for an insect that
seems to prefer flying low among the small brown and green grasses.  The male of this
species is blue with black markings. © Carol Davis, 2005
