Is this a male White-legged Damselfly (Platycnemis pennipes)?
Thanks, Faredin. But how do I distinguish between the White-legged Damselfly (frankly the legs don't look all that white in the pics I saw) and the Azure Damselfly? To my inexperienced eyes they look the same.
Good you checked it Ursula, I have suggested you the right one. Yours is a male and you can see both the male and female (mating) here: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/272...
The Wikipedia article states that the Familiar Bluet is native to the US and Canada... Unfortunately I (and the damselfly in question) are in Germany.
