Common Blue, and Large Red, Damselflies

female Common Blue Damselfly, Enallagma cyathigerum

Pair of Common Blue Damsels.

Here the female is ovipositing among the rocks.

Dave pointed this one out to me; it was quite a distance from me, hence the bad picture. I cannot identify it, so if you got any idea, leave a comment, please?

While Dave was walking about while I was taking these photos, he got himself a little larvae of? I don't know. Do you? Some kind of Sawfly or MicroMoth, perhaps.

Dave's thumb might give you an idea of size.
