RoyW's picture

An immature male

I agree with the species ID, but this is an immature male rather than a female.

What RoyW said.

Yes, immature male. Female Blue-tailed Dams DO come in a variety of colours but a green thorax with a blue tail light is a young male.

Corrected

Thanks both for pointing out it's an immature male. I've revised the id.
I'll look more closely next time.
