A Couple of Insects

When I arrived at school, I saw this moth on the gate. It's abdomen was arched back; unfortunately I only got three shots in before I accidentally knocked the gate and it flew off.

At the end of school, some kids saw this damselfly - "itotombo" - in the window of the staffroom, between the curtain and the glass. It was caught with a net and one of the boys held it for me to photograph. They're usually very difficult to get close to in wild, so I'm sorry I didn't get better shots of it.
