A better shot of one of the blue-tailed damselflies that doesn't have a blue tail!

Hi Roger, so was I until I was pointed at this website brocross.com/dfly/species/elegan.htm. The females of this species are SO variable! I think what happens is that they have blue tails and bright colours (violet or pink) when immature and they lose the blue tail and mute down their thorax colours as they mature.
