3 Comments on “Blue Azure Damselfly. 

  1. I hope you won’t mind me saying that I’m pretty sure that’s an Azure Damselfly not a Common Blue… I learnt recently that you can tell the difference by looking at the top of the ‘tail’ just under the top of the wings. On an Azure there is a flat-bottomed U shape, and on the Common Blue there is a mushroom shape. Certainly made my life easier when trying to identify which is which, hope you’ll find it useful 🙂

    • Excellent, Suzy! Thank you for pointing out that my image is of a blue azure, and not a common blue damselfly. They can be very variable, but the lack of a spot on the segment after the abdomen is the identifier.

      No, I certainly don’t mind you pointing out my mistake; I welcome it. 🙂
