Photos from a recent walk into the Anacortes Community Forest Lands yielded news about the distinction between dragonflies and damselflies (pictured here). I discovered many opportunities to capture images of these amazing little insects in their environment: on leaves, branches, logs and ferns. I mistakenly identified them as dragonflies, but reader Charles Cossel pointed out they are more like “distant cousins.” Differences include size, eyes, body shape, wing shape and position of wings at rest. Now I have to get back to chasing dragonflies so I have comparative photos!
