thanks to you all for your votes and comments on the lil' blues.

Today it is a public holiday in France so I could go to my beloved spot on the mozzy lake.
When the rain had stopped ( we needed much more) the damselflies were out. I went after this one for ten minutes, creeping up on it wherever it moved Smile
It is a male Banded Agrion
