Work party at the pond-dipping ponds

Went along to "help" everyone stare at the pump that was filling the pond-dipping ponds yesterday morning - I took a few pics.
A dragonfly nymph, not sure if it was still occupied or which species it might be?

There were one or two Purple Hairstreaks knocking about but very flighty and didn't settle for long. Anyone know which damselfly this one is?

Another record shot but still satisfying.

This Smoky Wainscot was disturbed from the long grass.

The ponds are well worth a visit at the moment with many species of Dragonflies and Damselflies on the wing.

Great to see photographic evidence of this uncommon butterfly well spotted Charlie.
