Carlton Marshes: My First 2013 Damselfly and Dragonfly

We saw our first Damselfly (just the one) and Dragonflies of the year at Carlton Marshes on Bank Holiday Monday, 27 May. This seems very late in the season for first sightings, but perhaps not surprising after the cold winter.

Lovely! We saw our first damselfly on our pond yesterday. It's only a week old today so we were thrilled.

Just beautiful, I love the damselfly and the chaser. I have to google a chaser, it may be a new one I have not heard of. Great shots!

I've only seen a damselfly so far and had the wrong lots of shots of beautifully focused sedge, with a damsel-blur.
