Damsel on a rock

The pond and bog garden are popular with Dragonflies and Damselflies and today a damselfly was happily sunning on a rock in the bog garden.
Whereas the majority of Damselflies hold their wings erect at rest one family known as Flatwings act more like Dragonflies with their wings held flat. There are quite a few species and many look very similar but I think this one is the Common Flatwing Damselfly austroargiolestes icterometas.
