Jewelwing Love

Not a great shot, but considering that the jewelwings hang out in the shadows of the creek in the woods, getting a photo of one at all isn't always easy, and a mating wheel even more difficult. I just love the jewelwings, and they certainly earn the name "jewel" (especially the males), but their preference for dimly lit spots and their skittish nature doesn't make them easy subjects.
