Good afternoon folks,
A female Common blue damselfly today.
ID of these species is not easy in females, but the small spine at
the end of the tail is the give away.
Thanks for all the C&C's on yesterday's Orange tip, much appreciated
as usual.
Colin

You have the wrong ID Colin.
This is a female Azure Blue - dark stripes on the thorax and a single spine at the rear.
Common Blue female has single stripe on thorax and 2 spines at the rear.Smile

A top shot Colin, I find it very hard to identify damselflies, I've bagged a few beside the two rivers in Tewkesbury today, no doubt Bricurtis will be able to id them for meSmile
