Male Variable Damselfly
Variable Damselfly tandem pair
I made a visit to Maxey Pits this morning in search of Variable Damselflies. Amoung the many Azures present, there were about 20 Variables including mating pairs and ovipositing pairs. The weather cycled from warm sunshine to deep clouds, which made activity vgery sporadic. Other species seen: Red-eye, Large Red, Blue-tail, Common Blue, Four-spotted Chaser and Hairy Dragonfly.
