Good morning folks,
Back to damselflies today, and this is hopefully an Azure. Even with good reference books
I still find it hard to distinguish some species, the old eyesight is not what it wasWink.
Again this is from one of my garden pools. I have built these the last couple of years as
a kind of outdoor studio, not just garden features. It allows me to practice the
macro stuff when I get home from work, as well as bringing new species into the garden.
Many thanks to all who liked my Weevil set.
Colin
