Hello Trekfriends, I have had great opportunity to spot these beautifull creatures but I am not sure, is it Blue Damsefly or Azure Damsefly. According to what I have read at http://www.habitas.org.uk/dragonflyireland/5606.htm the Blue Damsefly is more probable.

Hi Lenka , I think you are right with blue damselfly , it is very neat that when they mate like this they also form the shape of a heart. great composition , with good sharpness and color , I like the excellent color contrast of the insects against the green. TFS

Hi Lenka,
Wonderful shot of these mating damselflies with very impressive sharpness and pleasant colours. Superb lighting and exposure and you have captured this temder moment so beautifully. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Beautiful combination of green and blue. The shallow dof also looks great.
