The water meadows below our wood on the banks of the Avon are a haven for dragon and damsel flies. On a late July walk we found these four and probably missed many more.
The pale blue one is a male White-Legged damsel, a good match for a British Dragonflies image. Naturespot explains that as well as the diagnostic broad, ‘feathery’ white legs, this damsel generally has a paler blue body to help distinguish it from the other blue damselflies. The paler green one is the female.
The dark one is a male Banded Demoiselle, plenty of examples on Naturespot. The darker of the two green ones is in fact a female Banded Demoiselle. Very different!
