This little blue damselfly was zipping about in the bracken ferns along Delfrate Road as I walked the other day. The shade of blue is quite striking to my eye!

There’s a spot over by the Mailbox Trail beaver pond that has a bunch of old rusted milk cans and such scattered about in the leaf litter. This one held a clutch of still-green ferns and some moss.
