400D - Sigma 105 - ISO 400
First one this year and a couple of others just emerging. Think it may be a Southern Emerald.

Lovely capture :)- is this rather early- I don't expect to see damsels for another month or more ?

Hi Brian, thanks for looking.
Last year my first damsel (I check the pond every day) was on the 19th April. Dragons began on 24th. So it's about right for here despite the recent cold snap.

Interesting- think it must be one of the early species- rather like broad bodied chaser dragonflies seem to come out first.

Yes. This damsel is of the same species that emerged first at this time in 2007.
