Oh! Forget to say - this is my the second attempt to handhold my combo (there was no room for the tripod there)!

Nice shots! I don't have any time for tripods.

Another one from Tanzania. Odd angles of the wings.

My first damselfly of the year. Looks like an immature common one. ID please?

That looks like a Argia fumipennis.
Thanks. But, those are rare in the UK and the wings have pseudpterostigmata unlike this one.

I managed to capture a four-spotted chaser in flight (100-400mm II on 5DSR at 400mm, 1/3200s iso 1000).
