We had our first blue damsel fly at our pond today, as well as the usual red ones.  Then we had two different types of dragonfly as well

We have the same two colours together here in West Flanders - I wonder if they're opposite sexes of the same species?

Didn't take any Nut - just sat transfixed 

One was a female Broad-bodied Chaser, the other didn't stay around long enough to identify.

Steve, the red and blue damselflies are different species http://www.british-dragonflies.org.uk/content/dragonfly-and-damselfly-identification-help

They have to stop and stay still for some time for me to get a pic

Wow, Beauties. They don't look real do they?

Thanks Dove.  I've had a look at that page and bookmarked it for future reference.  Aren't they great photos?!
