Red-eyed Damselfly (Erythromma najas)
Red-eyed Damselfly (Erythromma najas)
This species can normally be found amongst the more numerous damselfly species at Fen Drayton. The red eyes, all black top to the thorax and large size make it fairly easy to pick out. This is an immature male, mature males are blue where this is yellow; females are yellow but have a short stripe on the thorax and no blue patch at the end of the abdomen.
