    1. We have had damselflies round our pond, Jo but these were photographed at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and RSPB reserves.

  5. Wonderful! I think it was you that taught me the difference between a dragonfly and a damselfly...up until then, they were all dragonflies to me :)

  6. They're fantastic photos. I can never find dragonflies or damselflies that will stay still long enough for me to take a photo, you must be very fast with your camera.

    1. These particular ones were spending lots of time basking, Jo and so were very cooperative subjects.

  7. Wow and just wow!! Sue, these photos are absolutely stunning and you must have the patience of a saint to wait for them!
    If they were larger I think their 'alien' appearance would make them quite scary !! :-)

    1. We didn't have to wait, Jane we just were in the right place when there were lots around. I always think lots of 'monsters' are based on insects.

    1. The only one that didn't stay still for long, Brian was the one that landed on my sun hat. Martyn couldn't get his camera pointed fast enough for that one. In the end we left them to bask.
