damselfly ID confirmation

I think these are a willow emerald damselfly and a fem. blue-tailed. The former would be a new one for me if confirmed. Thanks.

The former is a Willow Emerald. The latter?

Second one looks like an infuscans form female Blue-tailed, to me. I'd expect to see the 8th segment of the abdomen a bit more distinctly coloured, but it's got the two-toned wing spots and the right markings on the thorax.

thanks, SA.
It's a good little spot as I also had a common blue damsel there today.
Didn't there used to be a thread of Odo sightings?
