I made another brief visit after work to Reculver to see if I could photograph the Willow Emerald Damselflies, ideally a shot with the wings open. I have found this shot a bit of a challenge as often the head is in focus and the tail is not or the other way around, a bit frustrating. I ended up using the 300mm lens today and found myself standing well back to try to get the whole body in focus. I kind of succeeded but still not quite there yet, much more room for improvement I think and I will have to think of another plan of attack. I ended up seeing 31 Willow Emerald Damselfly in the area, a great number to see and also seen were a good number of Migrant Hawker as well as Common Blue Damselfly with a few Common Darter noted.
