Los Caballitos Del Diablo

Calopteryx virgo meridionalis aka Beautiful Demoiselle (male blue) Female (green)

In spanish, they call these caballitos del diablo azul, which means (Blue Devil's Horses). When I was with Ruth, I heard this name many times, and I always wondered why caballitos del diablo? if any of my spanish friends know, please tell me the story.
For now, these are my first shots of them :) it is not very usual for me ;)

You can enlarge…but they seem a bit blury..it was a windy day :(
