Amazingly Beautiful River Jewelwings... 

One of the highlights of a recent trip to the Northumberland Shore of Nova Scotia was finding River Jewelwings, Calopteryx aequabilis, along the Wallace River. This is a male, photographed July 20th, perched over the water on some emergent grasses waiting for a female to fly by.

This is the female River Jewelwing, Calopteryx aequabilis. Photographed along the Wallace River on July 20th.

And this was the point of the male perching over the water: a mating pair of River Jewelwings, Calopteryx aequabilis. Also photographed July 20th along the banks of the Wallace River.
