Damselflies

When I was back in the UK I spent a but of time in Norfolk, which has some prime fishing locations in it.  The wildlife around these water was great, although not many fish were being caught.

I was amused to watch these damselflies, which I think are Blue Tailed Damselflies, using the floats for a resting post.

I love photographers who can see whatever else is photogenic, not just the subject they had first set out to explore. Nicely captured.

Fun! Nice of someone to build all those damselfly resting spots )).... Great photography, you are so quick on that button. I'm lucky if I can get my eyes to focus on one of these flitty beauties, let alone try to take a picture.

Neat linear reflections! Not sure if linear is the right word, but sounds like a good candidate.
The red resting objects are very colorful and unique also.
Have a Great Week, Stewart!
Peace :)

I love damselflies, particularly with the aqua coloration. It's so cool with the great reflections in the water, and I like the first one with the second damselfly going by like a helicopter.
