Willow Emerald Damselflies at Reculver

Whilst out yesterday I called in at Reculver to have a look for Willow Emerald Damselflies of which a few were seen here last year. It was very pleasing in the warm sunshine to find 10 Willow Emerald Damselflies and it looks like they have colonised this area now and hopefully they will go from strength to strength. The camera was able to grab a few pleasing images of these beauties and also here were a few Migrant Hawkers and Common Blue Damselflies. I really need to get a decent image of the Willow Emerald from above, a shot I have not quite cracked yet but I shall hopefully get it soon if I keep trying.
