Seepage Dancer Damselfly (Argia bipunctulata)

Seepage Dancer Damselfly  (Argia bipunctulata)
Males and females are typically different in color, with the male showing more brilliant color, though some female damsels are also brightly colored. In some species females have both a male-form and a female-form color pattern.

Damselflies require water for reproduction, and are often found near ponds, streams, etc., but some species may be found at a distance from water, especially near the ground in grass, woods, etc.

Some emerge early in spring, others in midsummer; in many locations, species follow a sequence through the warm part of the year.

Damselflies are predators on smaller invertebrates.
