After spotting my first damselflies of the year (Large reds) on 21 April, there was quite a lull (probably dull-weather-induced) until any further species appeared. But, on a warmer, sunnier day last week (3 May), all three of the more common blue species appeared together. They are:

220511 azure damselfly

Azure damselfly (Coenagrion puella)

220511 common blue damselfly

Common blue damselfly (Enallagma cyathigerum)

220511 blue-tailed damselfly

Blue-tailed damselfly (Ischnura elegans)
