Emerald Damselfly

We were doing a bit of gardening this morning and I spotted this very small damselfly come into the garden and hang from a small potted plant. I believe it is a female Emerald Damselfly, lestes sponsa, but please don’t hold me to that…I have a very bad reputation for my critter identification. I assume it has come in from Doctors Pond and it’s the first damselfly I have seen this year.

Here’s a shot of her when she had had enough of my clicking and she flew away.
