Insight into blue damselflies: Common Blue Damselfly (Enallagma cyathigerum) and Azure Damselfly (Coenagrion puella) are both very common throughout most of the UK between May and July. The Azure has a more restricted northerly range but the Common Blue is recorded as far north as the Shetland Isles.
Both species can often be found together over a wide range of watery habitats although the Azure shows a preference for smaller ponds and lakes with plenty of emergent vegetation.
