Imagine my delight …

…when I spotted this tiny beauty yesterday afternoon!

You may not be able to tell from that shot quite how small this little damsel was, but luckily it decided my finger was a nice spot and you can get a sense of scale.

I could hardly believe my luck as I felt it was too soon and too cold for any Damselflies or Dragonflies to be emerging yet. But there it was fluttering by in that distinctive way and I was delighted to manage to get some photos to prove I’d seen it 🙂

For your information this is a Large Red Damselfly, though I dispute the use of the word ‘large’!
