Indeed it is, Alastair.
We normally see these damselflies around February, or late summer, in Melbourne.
Is this early for these little creatures in the UK?
Thanks, Vicki. I think our Damselflies are appearing at their normal time, more or less.
Great minds think alike Mike – I’ve just put up some shots of a large red damselfly!
I don’t know about great minds, Lucy. It’s probably more to do with the time of year and a sunny day. 🙂
I’ve seen them all my life but never this close. Do you mind me asking what kit lens you shot it with?
The lens used for this shot, Jerry, was a Canon 60 mm EF-S f2.8 macro lens.
Thank you Mike.
Fantastic shot of a beautiful damselfly 🙂
It is a beautiful insect with lovely colouring.:)
