Azure Damselfly

By lawbert
An Azure Damselfly captured at a pond that is local to me.

I nearly got a clean background which is what I was aiming for but when shooting in a reedbed its pretty difficult and Im not one to start damaging the surroundings just for a picture.

Many Thanks to all who commented and voted on my upload of yesterday and especially to Bricurtis for the correct identification.

Well done on getting such a clear background which allows for the detail on the wings.

Superb capture! I saw these yesterday, but they just would not land, thus I couldn't get a shot of one, only the red ones landed. Oh well, next time Smile
