Winter Damelsfly is one of only two species of European dragonflies that overwinter as adult insects.


Sympecma fusca rest with their wings alongside their bodies and do not have
the metallic emerald green sheen that is characteristic of the Lestes.


When the adults emerge they move away from water, often to heath or grassland
a long distance from water, where they overwinter hidden amongst dried plant stems.

This Blue Damelsfly is one of the most common European Dragonfly; it is found
around almost any waterbody and can also be found away from breeding sites in
grassland and woodland. 

 

Enallagma cyathigeru is a regular visitor to gardens and is on the wing from the end
of May through to September. 

 

Common Blue Damselfly is an aggressive species: males will defend their females
as they lay their eggs, both from their own kind and other species.
