|Large Red Damselfly, male|
|With shadow ...|
|Query female Common Blue|
Caroline: I just realised you have a query on your Common Blue Damsel. It looks like Azure Damsel to me (the first black mark on the abdomen is shaped like an underlined U. In Common Blue, it's an oval on a stalk.)
|A bit of a jigsaw puzzle!|
There were very few Dragonflies flying about, but we saw a couple flit through the trees.
I also saw the following creature, presumably depositing eggs as it she flew up and down numerous times within a small radius of weed. I would be glad to have an ID!
I assume the following is a nymph of some kind, but I don't know whether it is a Damselfly or some other creature ...
We also saw a few Orange Tip butterflies and a Red Admiral. A flash of crimson caught my attention as a Burnet Moth fluttered by the waterside. It was enjoying the warm sunshine, and was too quick for my camera!
