Macro Monday: The Damselfly Dead

That is a dead damselfly (view larger here). An ebony jewelwing, to be specific.

It was quite pretty, and I tried to take a number of shots of it in repose, but this one — this utterly broken, mutilated shot — is my favorite of that day’s bunch.

It looks like a creature in some kind of benediction or prayer. Or perhaps in mourning.

Either way: please to enjoy.
