Orange Bluet damselflies (Enallagma signatum) mating near the swimming beach at Lake Louise State Park in Minnesota.

Most Bluet damselflies are blue and black and hard to tell apart -- in some cases it takes a microscope. Orange Bluets start out with the same color scheme, but turn a beautiful bright orange at maturity. Females sometimes remain blue, but more often become green or yellow; the one in this mating wheel is in mid-transition.
