This Damselfly seems to be looking at me, looking at it! Such beautiful a blue insect! It’s clinging to a much bigger flax (Harakeke) leaf at ‘my’ other pond, the 2nd and less visited one I discovered at Easter. I like the tiny shaddows cast by it’s legs too.The last time I posted one of these I said it was a Dragonfly and I was quickly put right by fellow bloggers, this time I hope I’ve been a good student!

Thanks also to my UK visitors who names the dried thistle heads for me…Teasles! Cute name for a bunch of prickles!
