Azure again?....

Hello All,

 

Following my last post of Common Blue damselflies which all turned out to Azure Damselflies!! I spotted this chap in the garden this evening and can't quite decide which one it is again despite the excellent information from emg on the last one!

 

I'm leaning towards Azure again but have this nagging doubt in the back of my mind so it's over to you for confirmation or correction please?....

 

There are three pictures from slightly different angles so hopefully this will help ID it?....

    Hello,

     

    You're right this is an Azure, the flat-bottomed U shaped mark on the top segment is a good ID point to look for.

      plus the black antehumural stripes on the thorax are thicker than the blue stripes and vice versa for the common blue

      great photos too :-)
