taken 18 years ago, near to Fritham, Hampshire, England

Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly (Ischnura pumilio)
Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly (Ischnura pumilio)
Localised species in marshy areas with short vegetation and exposed mud. The heavy grazing and trampling from ponies keeps a few sites in the New Forest suitable. This male can be told from 'common' Blue-tailed Damselfly by the blue 'tail' being closer to the end on the abdomen.
