030/365 Common Blue Damselfly

Todays image, number 030, is of a Common Blue Damselfly taken very early in the morning, hence all of the dew droplets covering this very delicate insect.  Photography of dragonflies and damselflies is easier to do first thing in the morning when they haven’t had the chance to warm themselves up with the sun. Looking at my exif data for this image, it was taken at 05.16am, 28mins after sunrise!
