Ebony Jewelwing Damselfly


Hiking near rivers, streams, and ponds on the Eastern side of the United States and Canada provides the chance to find Ebony Jewelwing damselflies looking for forest mosquito meals or suitable locations to hatch offspring. The black-winged damselfly can be identified by jet-black wings with iridescent blue or green trim along with similar reflective markings on both the head and body. Light flickering off an Ebony Jewelwing manages to captivate observers in the moment and draw attention to their presence; and knowing they like to eat mosquitoes definitely makes it a welcomed one.
