Thank you

Chris,
I have it up as the common blue on flickr. Was looking for something else when I came across it , and it being white marked I thought another copy and past error. Ah well, ho, hum, plenty of humble pie in the pantry. :))

Also shows the wedge shaped black mark on the side thorax very well, which can sometimes be variable, but when clearly defined together with the lack of any additional black spur, as on this specimen, rules out Coenagrion sp.
