Emerald Damselfly.


A wander through the dense grassy scrub behind the Great Pond this morning produced a few sightings of the dainty and attractive Emerald Damselfly (Lestes sponsa). It was quite a challenge to accurately focus on any individual perched deep amongst the grasses with an immature male (above) being the first subject. 



Next was an an immature female.


After a bit of a search I finally located the more colourful male.

  2. I love the last image frank, so very pretty.

    I have not seen so many damsels and dragonflies this year.

  3. Interesting to see the Emeralds with their wings along their back like that. I am more used to seeing them like in your last picture.
