Male common blue damselfly

Enallagma cyathigerum


Male is mostly blue with a black band on the tail . Female is brown/greenish with more black on the tail.


Ponds and slow running water across the UK.


As the name suggests this is a common damselfly throughout the UK. Still nice to see them though.
