Hi Mr. Hoff,

I am a forestry consultant from WV. I am doing a research project for a large ownership in WV, VA, & KY on how their forest management operations affect rare, T&E species. I am needing a photo of an Eastern Red Damsel to use in my report. The ownership would also like to make a field guide for their foresters to help better protect T&E species in their daily operations. Would it be okay to include your photo of the Eastern Red Damsel in the report and the field guide?
