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.

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
