Atcham - White legged Damsels

I’m gradually expanding the range of images available in the Odonata gallery and I had realised I was missing teneral and female White-legged Damselfly! A quick call at the Severn near Atcham soon put that to rights!

Quite a few teneral damsels were on the wing, easily recognised by the orange pink hue of the thorax / abdomen








Mature females have a typically pale green colouration and were certainly in the minority seen today










Plenty of adult and maturing males












I couldn't ignore this male Banded Demoisselle either!
