Esther’s Threadtail

Esther’s Threadtails are tiny, but beautiful damselflies that live in southern Central America and northern South America. Males hover over quiet streams. Finding dragonflies that someone else spotted was often challenging. “Its on the leaf over the rock,” was all fine and good—except if the stream is strewn with rocks. Our guides used laser pointers to indicate the approximate location of our quarry. The guides, gentle readers, were careful not to directly point a laser beam at an individual animal.
