At last, yesterday I managed to get a half-reasonable pic of one of these little fellas. Not sure of their correct ID, so help requested from one of you experts out there, please!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

looks like an immature female Common Blue to me, could be wrong?

Nice captures either way...

I love the almost metallic shine on these wonderful creatures. I think both versions are equally lovely images.

Fabulous! Never seen one as green as this, and you managed to catch him against perfectly co-ordinated tones. V1 is so unusual as a composition, with that strong vertical.

What lovely captures! So cool you managed to compose these so well too. I have no idea what they are but the words 'mayfly' and 'damselfly' spring to mind. Although I can't say for sure that I even definitively know either one!
