Bit of a strange one, Damselflys normaly rest with their wings back. When I saw this one I thought it was drying its wings but when I got home and went through the shots it only has three wings!!
Not sure if it had been fighting and dont know if it could still fly.

Nice and sharp with a clean background - superb work!
However a bit more space round the wing tips would be nice.

Very sharp and colourful, Brian, agree about the tightness in the frame. Aaaw, I feel sorry for the three-winged damselfly, but it's a smashing image anyway.
