Clamp-tipped Emerald - Male - Somatochlora tenebrosa - Male
Greenville, Providence County, Rhode Island, USA
August 11, 2002
Size: Approximately 2 inches
This individual was in the obelisk position on my lawn. It never moved as I took photos from every angle. When I finished, there it stayed, motionless. I waited a half hour: no movement. Concerned, I gently touched its legs with a very small twig: off it went!
