Blue-tailed Damselfly (Ischnura elegans)

The Common Blue Damselfly can be easily mistaken for the Azure Damselfly (Coenagrion puella), but on the back and the thorax, the Common Blue Damselfly has more blue than black; for the Azure Damselfly it is the other way around. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Blue_Damselfly

Location is a small park pond in North London, UK.

Update: Correct ID by jB77, previously erroneously ID’ed as Azure Damselfly (Coenagrion puella)
