This series were taken yesterday at a place called Beeleigh Water, near Langford, Maldon, Essex. It is where the rivers Chelmer and Blackwater meet.

I am notoriously wrong when I try and name damsel flies and dragon flies so if any one can confirm the identities I would appreciate it. V2,3,4 are the same type and I believe are Banded Demoiselles

Wonderful green tones in v1, Russell. No idea when it comes to these insects though.

year in a lot of areas, very well captured.
