Thanks to you and your readers’ submissions, I have figured out this sweet backyard guardian is an ebony jewelwing damselfly (and a guy). He seemed to be making sure I didn’t steal the silver from the table, but when I brought out the camera, he turned into a ham. This sort of ”curtsey” is a kind of warning or territorial display, isn’t it?
