Bluet. Not a flower.

At least these are, indeed, blue. There are also Scarlet Bluets, Orange Bluets, Rainbow Bluets... You get the idea. These two damselflies are Familiar. No, not to me, but that's the name: Familiar Bluet. And they were even bluer in person than the photos show. Had to look closely to find them; being only an inch and a half or so long, they weren't flying much more than a few inches off the ground... Three cheers for a slow day at work--and an "office" in a location where you can step outside to the road and find little gems like these.
