This guy is going to get a cramp looking for ladies! The image contains excellent DOF and clarity. First time I've seen one with its vut in the air. Well taken.

I think this one likes golf! What a club he will make! And I see he is giving you the twice over, a real beady eye you got her, Andy. Very nice, the tail really adds a different POV to this guy.

Nice and sharp capture showing a peculiar behaviour ;-)
I've seen one do this, and afterwards he bent the tail underneath him. I tend to think it's to do with getting the tail end flexible in readiness for mating. It can't be for attracting females as such, as damselflies are much more crude than that - they just grab one and have a go ;-))

Beautiful shot, Andy. You really took advantage of this posing to fill your frame well, with the tail and the wings pointing towards the two corners on the right. Great colors and fine DOF, just like it should be.
I can answer the whats he doing? He's cleaning his wings this isthe standard way of doing it and blue tails have to do it quiet often as one of their hunting methods is to snatch prey off spidders webs.
Very nice clear image very well captured

Of your gallery I prefer this one as the sharpening here is perfect to the edge giving a clear view by a great DOF, well done Andy.

Funny character these one. Huge eyes, enourmous wings and some kind of "erected" tail.
Good sharp, althought it could have been better.

Andy, this is funny and nice.
Excellent colors, blurred bg and composition. Sharpness is great too. And, of course, this very nice pose.

i like the picture and also this is strange and interesting position. even if that species is very common here and i work a lot with the Odonata i have necver seen something similar.
also one mention, that is a "she" so in normal way will not wait for a female. :D
