Blue-tailed Damselfly on the wing…

By April 27, 2021Blog

Maria Justamond has sent in this lovely photo of  Blue-tailed Damselfly seen at Upton Magna on 26th April. The females of this species have a number of different colour forms…5 to be precise! This is form rufescens which is an immature coloration with an orange/pink thorax which often gets pinker than seen here. The other stunning immature colour form is violacea which as it’s name suggests is a beautiful purple colour…do send in photos if you see one.
