Bluet Damselflies

I know these are bluet damselflies, just not which kind. They all must have emerged last night and have mating on their mind this morning.

The damselflies were abundant in the shrub border, which includes honeysuckle vines in places.

Mating takes place in the wheel position.

Obviously, eating was top priority for this damselfly.
