Pinhey's Whisp
Agriocnemis pinheyi
The Pinhey's Whisp (Agriocnemis pinheyi) ranges from central and west Africa into South Africa. It is a very tiny damselfly which can be difficult to follow with the naked eye as it moves through the tall grass at the edge of a pond. The images here of both sexes of various ages were taken along the edges of a pond near Dullstroom, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa. The shots were taken in January, 2006, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender with a 580 flash.
