Laney, your damsel is Calopteryx virgo with the lovely english name of
Beautiful Demoiselle and thats the male, the female is iridescent green, and that is a really good photo  :) :)

this is the male and female of the very similar C splendens - Banded Demoiselle - Male blue - female green, took this last year at our local stream

I got a close up of the male but wanted both in picture so backed off a bit - got this shot and then they were off !

Woooow amazing photos, Ayr beach was one of my favourite childhood haunts along with the baths which were close by too  ;D
Laney I totally see why you go on that walk what a beautiful landscape, adore the tree I'd talk to him too.
Mark that is one fabulous photo love the electric blue and metallic green and the fact that you caught them both in the same shot. Stunning!!!
