I have been away for the weekend and was in the New Forest yesterday where there was a group of these wonderful creatures by a stream. Probably the most colourful of all the damselflies.

Thanks for looking.

The Beautiful Damoiselles are my favourites! Last year we had lots, but I've only seen two this year. You've caught the details and colours on this one brilliantly! Smile

Superb sharp capture and beautiful colourful image, I have only seen these two or three times but have never got anywhere near enough to photograph.

I am so glad others have used the word iridescence as I was struggling to remember the correct spelling.
Captured to perfection, Jason. I have seen antique brooches modelled on those colours and wings.
