Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Damselfly
This pretty blue bug is easy to spot!
There are lots of different flying insects to capture and donate in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, from the emperor butterfly to the red dragonfly and beyond. Another flying insect -- the damselfly -- is now appearing on islands in the Northern Hemisphere, and we’re here to help you track it down.
According to AllGamers, damselflies will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from November to February, and on islands in the Southern Hemisphere from May to April. The damselfly can appear at any time of day.
The damselfly looks like a bright blue dragonfly, but it’s actually a different insect. Still, it’s pretty easy to spot as it quickly flies around your island. Check out the gameplay video below to see what a damselfly looks like as it's flying around.
A single damselfly can be sold for 500 Bells at Nook’s Cranny, or for even more if you sell it to Flick when he visits your island. Just remember that you’ll also need to donate one of these insects to Blathers at the museum to finish your insect collection.
In our experience, damselflies aren’t very rare, so it likely won’t take you long to track one down. Even so, capturing one of every insect in the game will still take quite a bit of time. That being the case, you may want to check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Horizons (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
