The small green dot at the head of the thorax distinguishes this Emerald Damselfly from other rarer varieties.

Cathal, immatures quite often display a bronze sheen before turning to their fine emerald green. Regards Chris.
Thanks for the info Chris, its a lovely colour even at this stage before 'colouring up'.
These damselflies are one of my favourites, they are quite tricky to photograph as they generally spread their wings when at rest which creates depth of field issues to get the whole subject in focus.
In my experience it is usually the older individuals that tend to be the most bronze coloured (and this is true of many emerald damselfly species). When newly emerged they tend to be bright green above, but are often deep yellow, or even orangey below.
My apologies Chris, I seem to be disagreeing with you quite a lot this morning (nothing personal - honest! ;o) )
Morning Roy, no problem, I respect your opinions. Regards Chris.
