My New Friend - the Damselfly
I spent a good half hour with this little blue fronted dancer (I think) damselfly. He was playing in the tall weeds near the Schuylkill river in Valley Forge National Park. He kept flying off to catch a new bug and would come right back to his perch near me, eat the bug while staring at me and then fly off and catch another. Finally he landed on my knee (covered by my black tick pants) and just looked up and gave me the once over. I was sitting on the ground cross legged using my knees and elbows as a tripod.) We just stared at each other for a while until I had to go.
