Common Blue Beauty

The Common Blue Damselfly is perhaps as the name implies,the most abundant of our damselflies.It is found in still and flowing water habitats and only seems to shun small ponds.
On the wing from late April to well into September the male is particularly handsome,decked out in an electric blue colour.The female comes in two colour forms,dull green and blue.
One of my favourite damselflies.
