A Common Sight.

The Common Blue Damselfly must be of our most abundant damselflies,hence the name.However it is  one of the most colourful especially the adult male in this bright blue.
My trip to Southford stream yesterday did not produce any early Banded Demoiselles but at the lake there were good numbers of the Common Blue in different stages of maturity.The immature males are a pale lilac,whereas the females prior to there adult green are a greyish.The adult female also has a blue form similar to the male.
