light on his feet..

This male damselfly, perched on the end of a board, is on the alert - ready to take to the air to defend his tiny little fiefdom, or to pounce an any females he spies with his little eyes..

 

I don't know this for a fact, but I suspect that damselflies are like dragonflies, and are unable to walk - much as we would be with six legs. At least, not without tripping over our own many feet!
