A recent and rare day of good weather resulted in numerous Damselflies on the move. I photographed this female Common Blue as it rested for a few seconds in between frequent sorties chasing prey through the lush reed beds at my local nature reserve.
EDIT: I originally claimed this Damselfly to be an Emerald, but after a correction (see below) by Brian (bricurtis) I've given it the correct description: a drab form of female Common Blue.
Thank you for your response my previous Damselfly feature of June 3rd. Although I've had very little time to spend on EPZ, I do appreciate your continued interest in whatever I upload.
