First Damsel of the Season

I was throwing some weeds in the green wheelie bin when I saw something flitting across the corner of my eye. To my surprise it was a damselfly which landed on a nearby length of old branch which was propped up against the fence. A good job the Nikon is usually in my shirt pocket just in case something interesting pops into view. It wasn't at all bothered as I gradually got the lens closer and closer.

Female Blue-tailed Damselfly

As far as I can tell it is one of several forms of female Blue-tailed Damselfly, maybe infuscans.


  1. love to watch these slim beauties!

    1. I often find they will settle close by as if they want to be photographed.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
