Attenuated Bluet
Enallagma daeckii
The Attenuated Bluet (Enallagma daeckii) is an eastern species which ranges west to southeastern Oklahoma and far east Texas. This very long and slender bluet is mostly blue and lacks the extensive black seen on the thorax of many others of this genus. The first two shots show a male Attenuated Bluet near Woodville, Tyler Co., Texas, in June, 2009. These shots were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 300mm F/4 l IS lens and 2X extender and 580 flash.
The next 2 shots show male Attenuated Bluets in the Angelina National Forest, Jasper Co., Texas, in June, 2009. The same photo gear as previously described was used.
The female shown here and the male just below were also in Jasper Co., Texas, in June, 2009.
