Emerald Damselfly - Lestes sponsa (female)

This image was taken in the early morning at Priddy Pools in Somerset on the 23rd July 2012.

 

Last year I photographed these for the first time but at the time could only get shots of a male, so this year I made a point of trying to get a shot of the female in its brilliant emerald colours, I was also trying the same with the Black Darter but so far, no luck yet!
