A global citizen science platform to discover, share and identify wildlife

Blue/green male damselfly with dark wings.
Changed to Calopteryx virgo. I don't remember Caleopteryx with big white spots on the wings in the area (as the females maculata have), so it should be a virgo.
@MichaelFulbright thanks, the ID seems good, so I changed it. They are common in the Southwest France too.
Lovely dark damesfly...
This looks a lot like the Ebony Jewelwing (Calopteryx maculata.) I am not familiar with it's global distribution, but I know that it is fairly common in the Southeastern US in streams and slow flowing rivers.
