I went back yesterday, 18th April to Westbere in the afternoon where a friend has a garden pond where the Large Red Damselflies have emerged in the past few days. Along with Sue, the owner, we had a good hour watching c7 Large Red Damselflies, most newly emerged drying out in the margins which allowed for some more practice with the macro lens with some pleasing results. I will make the most of the Large Red Damselflies for they are one of the easier damselflies to photograph and allow a close approach unlike many of the other blue damselflies which no doubt will give me the run around in the next few weeks to get some shots of. Weather permitting I should be seeing Variable, Azure and Blue tailed Damselflies soon so can't wait for the next outing and the next photography challenge!
