Life by the Creek

I went out for a walk in the afternoon, actually hoping to find a frog to put on my lanscap for the lenscap challenge. I didn't find any frogs, but there were some dragonflies and damselflies down by the creek. I guess they were taking advantage of the fine weather, because it's been quite dull lately.

I was quite surprised that I could get so close to these guys as they the type who are usually quite camera-shy. The bottom one is certainly an Ookawa tombo ("big river damselfly") Mnais nawai, the male. I'm pretty sure the top one is the female of the species.
