ZEISS. Discover the fascinating world of birds, and win a birding trip to Columbia

Please help me ID this Damselfly (1 Viewer)

Well-known member
I am a beginner on dragonflies and damselflies.
Tried to ID and initially thought this is an Emerald Damselfly. Then read that an ID feature of the Emerald is that the spot on the wings is dark, whilst these are clearly not. Then I thought Willow Emerald Damselfly but please could someone confirm or correct?
Taken at Minsmere RSPB reserve in August last year.

Many thanks for any help! George

I'm struggling to see details in this picture that eliminate immature female Emerald Damselfly but that may just be my eyesight.
