A top class capture, Mike, of this beautiful blue tailed damsel. I would like to see a variant in presentation, as a vertical, with a little more room at the top of the image for the damsel to 'move' into. Carol

Well done for getting close to this little Damsel, Mike, they can be very flighty.
You got pretty close, too, from seeing the detail you got here.
Super colour rendition, too.
