The most widespread damselfly in the Western Hemisphere. found from Chile well into the United States including Hawaii. Like all Forktails, Rambur's is tiny, rarely reaching an inch in length. They favor ponds, lakes, marshes, and slow streams with vegetation and ample sunlight. Damselfly nymphs are said never to live in salt water, however, Rambur's nymphs have been observed in brackish and even sulphurous waters. Normally, Forktail photographs require macro work but this shot was made with the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR lens at full extension.
