Damsel Porn

As promised to fellow blogger Mike Powell, whose fantastic nature blog you can check out here, I’m posting some Damselfly porn today.  These are some photos of the Large Red Damselflies mating in Kanadaskogen forest.  I’m pretty sure they were enjoying themselves and didn’t seem to mind my intrusion too much or maybe damselflies are natural exhibitionists?

  1. Thanks for the shout out (though I now worry that search engines will associate my name with porn). Damselflies and dragonflies assume such unusual acrobatic positions when mating that it defies description, so it’s good that you were able to capture them in photos. The way that I figure, any insect that is so boldly colored has to be a bit of an exhibitionist–it’s not like they can camouflage themselves very easily.
