A Dancer

I'm happy to have had this dancing damselfly land on me for this photoshoot. It's believed that their jerky flight pattern led to them being referred to as dancers, but I'm not so sure. I'd regard a dancer as having smooth and fluid movement. 

The long hairs on their legs apparently help them catch insects in flight, and that's why I don't shave mine, either -look at what I caught!
