Found by a large pond in an good-sized area of heathland. There are lots of damselflies and dragonflies here.
No interactions present.
I think you have a fairly mature male here.

Gosh, that was quick!
My book seemed to imply that they started off green and then went blue but I guess that's not the case. Thanks - I hope you can tell me about the next one!
I would say that this one does seem to have a little maturing to do.
When fully mature the thorax colour matches the blue towards the end of the abdomen and on the spots on the head.
