Nature Tuesday – Damselfly heart (edited post)

Damselflies are insects of suborder Zygoptera in the order Odonata. They are similar to dragonflies, but are smaller, have slimmer bodies, and most species fold the wings along the body when at rest. Damselflies exist in a range of habitats in and around the wetlands needed for their larval development; these include open spaces for finding mates, suitable plant species for ovipositing and suitable water quality.

During my walks through the park, I have often seen these beautiful insects. They are absolutely spectacular. Interestingly, during their mating, their bodies take heart shape. Here are some of the best photos I have taken.

I have also created a post Macro Monday, where I have included several of my macro photographs. It is an open list, so I found you to participate with your macro photos.
