Do you know the difference between a dragonfly and a damselfly? We have varieties of both here at Upton, so here is a quick guide to telling them apart:⠀ Dragonflies have quite large and 'thicker' looking bodies, with eyes that look like they are attached to each other and they sit with their wings open away from their body. ⠀ Damselflies look smaller and have 'skinnier' bodies, with eyes that look separate from each other and tend to sit with their wings folded to their body.⠀ ⠀ #damselfly #dragonfly #ntmidlands #nationaltrust #wildlifewednesday
Walking through a car park yesterday I thought I spotted someone’s lost pendant.  Bending to pick it up I realised it was real but no longer alive. What colours! I think it’s a Banded or Beautiful Demoiselle- calopteryx splendens or calopteryx virgo #wildlife #damselfly #insects #beautifulnature
At the opposite end of the animal spectrum to the giraffe, is the blue-tailed damselfly (Ischnura elegans). . . . #damselfly #damselflies #odonata #zygoptera #zoology #animalphotography #macro #closeup #compoundeyes #dragonfly #animalpics

Emerald and a common blue Damselfly I captured on my travels! My knowledge is very limited but a quick and easy way to differentiate between a damselfly and dragonfly is, when they rest the damselfly wings close and the dragonfly wing stays open.
Common blue damselfly 🦋 Saw loads of these in the fields on my walk yesterday 🌿
