Haven't been out with the camera for a long time now, or had time for e-photozine, due to working long hours and week-ends.
Managed to get out this morning around Kingsbury Water Park, Near Tamworth and captured this little beauty.
I think it is a female Blue-tailed Damselfly, but stand to be corrected as I am not an expert on these.
Hope you like it?

What a beauty and brilliantly caught! I saw a Blue-tailed Damselfly just the other day (deleted my shot), they are quite small, but the colours are wonderful!
