Ol' Blue Eyes

A female damselfly deposits eggs on the stem of a plant as she is clasped by her blue-eyed male partner at the edge of a pond near Elkton, Ore., on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012. The adult damselflies will die as the cold of winter comes.  Their eggs will grow as wingless larvae in the pond. Depending on species, water temperature and food supplies the larvae will take six months to several years to reach their adult flying stage.
