beautiful macro capture here David, .. but I think with this one the use of the TC is redundant; .. IMHO 300 DA* is good enough to render this colour brilliance and detail (likely even more) without any complementary "gadget" ..

no idea on the species, .. sorry; .. but it looks splendid

Sometimes though they fly if you get too close so the TC does give a bit of latitude. Depends a bit how much you are prepared to crop. Tricky to get the two shots to compare to know really. As you say - it is David's new gadget anyway so we have to try them don't we
Well taken with the sparkle in the wings there.
It looks like one of the variants of a female Blue Tailed Damselfly to me. In fact it looks like a female Scarce Bluetailed Damselfly but they are very rare so I will probably rule that out. I'll get Neil P to have a look - he'll know.

Looks like a female 'refens' form blue tailed damselfly, and very nice photo too

Hi, I think it may be a Blue Tailed female but not sure. if you try the links below these were the nearest matches. There apparently are 4 or 5 different forms for the female the bottom link shows some of the variations:-
