Created By: Wholly H2O


Flashing across streams in electric blue bursts, vivid dancers (Argia vivida) can be found hanging around spring-fed streams in arid/semi-arid regions, feasting on a wide variety of aquatic insects. These small damselflies boast bright blue coloring and a dark stripe across their upper thorax. While they may look innocent, these bright bugs will munch on everything from mayfly larvae to full-grown mosquitos, so you can thank them for saving you from a few extra bug bites while you’re out in nature!
