Blue Featherleg

Or White-legged Damselfly as it is known in the UK and a very attractive damselfly.The males are blue with feathery hind legs which they display in courtship to the mainly green females.However the immature females can be found in the creamy-white colour with brownish thorax,known as the form lactea.
The following photos were taken on the Greek Island of Lefkada where I came across a small colony near to a sheltered stream in the corner of a field.
