Hard to see any detail, but could be a pair of Ischnura heterosticta.

There is only just enough visible in these photos to make out the distinguishing features of the size of the blue abdominal rings and the thoracic pattern to ID these as a pair of Wandering Ringtails.

I agree with Harvey, but detail barely enough for a positive id.
