Berrington Pool - Old red eyes

The Godwits had departed departed from Venus Pool by evening.....

After all the storms and torrential rain, the insects have had a torrid time. I though a quick look at Berrington Pool might be in order?

I knew I wouldn't see anything on the wing (it was late evening) but there is always the chance, in these conditions - if you do find something - it will oblige......

And this little fella did! A nice little Red-eyed Damselfly, clinging to the vegetation! Poor light but perfect posing weather.....






A Blue tailed Damselfly at first glance? Size, the all back top of the thorax (and of course red eyes) distingishes 'Red eyed' from 'Blue tailed'....






The close up, just look at those eyes....








I left him, probably hoping the heavens will ever open like that again - back to the Lily pads in the morming?
