Berrington Pool - Damsels galore

My first visit to this favourite spot with hopes of a Downy Emerald coming to nothing! There were plenty of Damselflies however.....

These have been on the wing the longest - Large Red Damselfly.....


Good numbers of Variable Damselfly, certainly a speciality of this general area!


As you can see, with this one seen from two angles, they are certainly variable and don't always have broken antehumeral stripes!




Common by name but Common Blue Damselfly running in second place to Variables on the day!


I think this pair are trying to tell the world - love is in the air? (Lust more likely!)


Note the size difference relative to this pair of Red-eyed Damselfly in tandem on the lily pad....


Here's the Red eyes a little closer....


phew, I didn't fall in!
