Azure Damselflies at Wilson's Pits

Wilson's Pits always has a large number of Azure Damselflies in early May, declining as the season progresses to be replaced by Common Blue. Today there were only a few (10-20) and the odd Red-eyed Damselfly. I managed to capture these pictures of a female eating a small fly. The cool weather meant that they were quite docile, although the dull conditions made getting a decent picture quite hard. The top picture shows a Common Blue with striking pink colouration.
