A Happy Damselfly

Damselflies are amazing creatures. The Common blue common in the UK. I adore insects and I photograph them to offer people a new perspective on bugs in a hope that they would think twice about using pesticides or harming them. This damselfly is photographed exactly as I found it and is not posed.
