Calopteryx maculata, 07 May 2020

Calopteryx maculata, the Ebony jewelwing;
Volusia county, Florida (07 May 2020).

Not a great shot, but I admit I generally lack the patience needed to photograph these jewelwings. They actively dart about in shaded habitats adjacent to water lines this time of year.
