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.


  1. You certainly take the most amazing photos! It's lovely that you share them on your blog, too. Thank you so much for all these glimpses into your worlds.

  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.

  4. Beautiful, sharp photos. Well done.


I hope you enjoyed your visit and I always appreciate your comments and feedback.
