      Hi,

      On Sunday (September 27), I photographed a damselfly (bluet?) at
      Shoreline Park in Mountain View, CA. When I loaded the photo onto my
      computer and enlarged it, I noticed some puzzling features, and I'm
      wondering whether you have seen or heard of anything like it.

      The (cropped) photo is attached. It looks like there is a leg growing
      out of its back. And it's unclear what's going on with the front legs,
      but it looks like something is wrapped around the front part of the thorax.

      I would really appreciate any feedback/info you are able to offer.

      Sincerely,
      Denise
