Those buggers really move! I only saw one that was sitting still for long enough for me to focus, and it wasn't even a pretty blue one =(
I think I'll stick to larger animals for now ;)

Damselfly? Oops. Well, I just assumed because it was chilling with about 20 big blue dragonflies...

Definitely wont be your last shot of the DF as there are plenty of them around.

Just wait for them to settle down, be patient and you should be rewarded accordingly.
