blue damselfly

By adrian_w  
On our annual orchid hunt in Mugdock Country PArk on Saturday.
While photographing the Lesser Twayblade (which at first sight looks like a birch twig in the moss) I spotted this damselfly perched on a twig. I was able to get a number of shots of it without it moving. All the other ones were darting around to quickly to take.
