Photographer Tony Flashman spotted the common blue damselfly's piercing eyes as he crawled around meadows at Fordwich Lakes, near Canterbury, Kent. Tony, from Deal, Kent, said: "This little fly thought it was being clever by hiding behind the grass in a game of hide and seek but he didn't do a very good job. I could see his eyes peeking out from either side and its legs wrapped around the grass."
