Azure Male Variability

Strength/weight of the black markings can vary considerably as this pair of male Azures demonstrates quite nicely.

Notice also the variation in the strength of the blue, the left example being an immature still developing its colour.

Additionally, this pair demonstrates the unreliability of the idea that Azure damselflies lack an inter-ocular bar; the mature individual on the right does show an inter-ocular bar.
