Ebony Jewelwings

Ebony Jewelwing Damselfly, Emmon’s Preserve, Kennebunkport Maine

It is Ebony Jewelwing season along the Baston River at Emmon’s Preserve (Kennebunkport Conservation Trust), and many of the streams in Southern Maine, right now. There is nothing quite like their green metallic bodies (blue in some lights) and velvet black wings. Two males in mock battle over a little ripple in a stream, flashing in out of dappled sun, is always a treat to see. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode. 1/500th @ f4 @ ISO 400 and 250. Processed in Polarr and assembled in FrameMagic.
