    Default A Damselfly

    This one is from my roof garden which I try to grow during this hard times. As frequent outgoing for just to fulfill a photographic hobby would be a careless attitude, I, to some extent, try the species come to me to be photographed. And, why not should I try this? Now I'm caring a few flowering plants on my roof- a completely new and beautiful world to me. Their silent growth, blooming etc please me so much. Their problems, need for water and food is making my senses. Though I'm not using any pesticides except home made Neem Oil just to prevent foreign attack on them. I found some visits of dragonflies and damselflies, stink bug, butterflies, weevils etc(weevils are not seen for a long time). This time I found the little damselfly(Probable ID- Senegal Golden Dartlet-female) on Spanish/Royal Jasmine(Jasminum grandiflorum) flower bud. What is new to me is that I, for the first time, discover the damselfly species on a height of some 20ft or so. Before this I found them mostly at grass level, sometimes 2 or 3 ft high.

    Nice to see this one. This has come out well. it is important to do something productive during the lockdown. Farming, even in rooftop, is satisfactory and reduces stress. I too have done a rooftop garden. Saw a few dragonflies at times but didn't have camera in hand. Saw small snails. This is on second floor rooftop. Most likely the snails came from the neighbouring mango tree. Haven't been able to photograph though. Will try sometime. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    Beautiful capture and composition. Good that there is light on the front part of the bud and on its head area. You have now your own secure garden to photograph and study the plants. Look forward to more. Thanks for sharing.
