I really like this photo and this species. It has such strong, metallic colours which really do shine as if they are a reflective metal surface. The wings are also really cool with the blue shading throughout. The photo could be made a lot better by being a bit more focussed and also less zoomed in, but the damselfly was too far away for a better photo.
