I'm going with Damsel Fly. Good to have around, they eat aphids and mosquitoes.
Did I win? Did I win?

First time we have had one in our yard. The picture really doesn't do him justice. He has the most beautiful turquoise blue body.

Thats a cool bug. Anything that eats misquitos deserves its own bug home. I've never seen one of those up here. :(

Nice pic...but shouldn't we be using the "Conversation" side for ID'ing bugs..???? (not GJ, is it? & it bumps off some GJ posts at the bottom) I love anything that eats mosq. too! Jeanne S.

Was this a challenge for Marlene to create a GJ Damsel fly? If anyone is up to the challenge it would be Marlene!

I LOVE to see the bugs--
I brought some walking sticks, preying mantis and some
other things home with me from Indiana. A couple of them have done well.....
BUT I agree with Jeanne--on the conversation side....
