Eastern Forktail

I agree with Scott King, who once mentioned that Eastern Forktails, were they not so common, would be a highly sought after damselfly. Sort of the Blue Jay (actually a quite handsome bird) of the dragonfly world. Males have bright emerald bodies and azure-tipped tails. Most adult females are a lovely shade of blue. Immature females sport a bright cinnamon color. I took these photos on 2 June 2017 in the Dakota County Lebanon Hills Regional Park.
