Star of the Month

Blue-tailed Damselfly - Brian WalkerBlue-tailed Damselfly Ischnura elegans is widespread and fairly easy to identify.  It is one of the six species we are asking people to look for as part of Dragonfly Challenge this month.  It can often be found in long grass near to water and is less flighty than most damselflies making it an easy species to see and  photograph.  An additional challenge is to look for the different female colour variants.
