Must get out more




Female (top) and male Common Blue Damselflies. The only half-decent pictures I've taken in a while. I've got to try harder....

I'm rubbish at identifying damselflies (in fact, I've probably got these wrong), but it's another instance where my beloved 995 saves the day. If a damselfly sits still for long enough, I can get a photo and sort it out later (using Britain's Dragonflies by Dave Smallshire and Andy Swash, a fine publication from WildGuides).
