Damselflies
Damselflies laying eggs.
Photographed in Pine Creek area of Red Rocks, Nevada.

There are three stages in the life cycle of a damselfly:
egg, naiad (the nymph of a damselfly) and adult.
Males of most damselfly species are brighter-colored than females. During mating you will often see them fly in tandem.
