Camera Critter Meme #32

I've mentioned many times how much I enjoyed my time in Texas in April of 2007. I saw many critters I don't see in central Oregon and a few I do see in the high desert.

However, it was the damselflies of Texas which puzzled me the most. The prettier the odonata, the easier it was to identify. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to ID all of them. Below are some of the shots of the damselflies of Texas I was able to acquire.

I notice you included several photos of that gorgeous PURPLE Variable Dancer! You trying to make a certain someone, who loves purple, jealous that you got purple damselfly shots? Huh? Suuuuure - I see how it is ;-)
