Common-Blue Damselfly (Enallagma Cyathigerum)

During the summer months I’ll head straight for the wildflower meadow next to the River Avon,its usually teeming with Damselflies long before the Dragons start to emerge.You can walk through the long grass and theres literally one taking flight with every step.Its hard going at times though because of the swarms of Mosquitos and numerous Clegg Flies,I suppose everything has a price to be paid.

What i tend to do with these is get down to their level,even if it means lieing on my belly and proping the camera up on my elbows,its pretty stable that way,not nice if its been raining though
