Slender Bluet
Enallagma traviatum

The Slender Bluet (Enallagma traviatum) is a pond damselfly of the eastern United States. Its range extends westward to east Texas which is where the first 4 shots on this page were taken in May, 2009. These images were taken with a Canon EOS 50D and an EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS lens and 2X extender and 580 flash in the Sam Houston National Forest, San Jacinto Co., Texas. The shot shown here shows a pair in tandem.

The next three images of Slender Bluet (a pair in tandem followed by two shots of females) were taken at Bouton Lake, Angelina National Forest, Jasper Co., Texas, in April, 2011, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and a Sigma 50-500mm lens and Canon 580 flash.
