Nice sharp focus on the eye David and a well judged DOF choice. I never knew they went through different colour phases, I thought I was discovering new species

Thanks Jim, I didn't know this either until a couple of weeks back when I posted an image of another one that someone kindly identified for me. I've since read up on them and found this out; this is probably why they seem to be so scarce.

Beautiful capture & superbly judged - I love the use of the shallow DOF to draw you in to the "business end" of the damsel fly.
