Western Red Damsel   (five photos)
Amphiagrion abbreviatum

red damsel eyes
I'm posting this crumby picture only to show the eyes of this tiny
Red Damsel.  This was not taken with a flash so the colors are true.  Supposedly,
these little damselflies do not have eyes spots but this one does.  Interesting.
Antelope Island is where this little insect calls home.  Carol Davis, 5-25-2010.

male red damsel
Rescued Male Western Red Damsel on Antelope Island.  This little guy was caught in a spider web and still has some of the web
on his wing.  He paused long enough to thank me and let me take a couple of photos.  Very cute. Carol Davis, 5-31-2009
