Note: The figures in brackets for each category are as follows. The first is the number of species with photographs within this index. The second is the total number of established breeding British species which might reasonably be found and photographed - i.e. excluding most rare vagrants and new arrivals.

On 22 June 2014 at Thompson Common in Norfolk, I accomplished my long term goal of obtaining images of all these species, by finding and photographing my first Scarce Emerald Damselflies. In 2015, I managed to add Southern Migrant Hawker to my collection and in 2018 I visited the remarkable colony of Southern Emerald Damselflies in Bucks. In future, perhaps I will manage to connect with a few vagrants or new arrivals while improving my photos of some others (most notably the elusive Northern Emerald)!
