First damselflies of the summer

I took a bike ride along the Wey Navigation Canal in Surrey yesterday armed with my 100mm Canon macro lens. There were no dragonflies to be seen but there were plenty of mayfly hatching and taking to the air for their one day adult life in the sunshine.

I did however find three species of damselfly. Several handsome male banded demoiselle which were a bit too flighty for photographs. But I did manage to stalk several azure and large red damselfly for photos.
