A damselfly lands on a fern leaf inside the Selous game reserve in Tanzania.

This story originally aired on Jan. 6, 2016.

Colorado photographer Robert J. Ross took thousands of photos in Tanzania -- lions, elephants, crocodiles. But it's his image of a wispy, blue damselfly perched on a fern leaf that's his favorite. The photograph is one of 400 in his new book, “The Selous in Africa: A Long Way From Anywhere.” He spoke to Colorado Matters host Nathan Heffel.
