Something slightly different

Time for something a little different. A few weeks back between rain showers, there was some sunshine. In that small window I managed to find some Banded Demoiselles by the River Dean in Woodford. There must have been a good couple of dozen, probably more, but they kept me occupied for some time. They have amazing colours. Take a look at these.

This is the male 



Both male and female in the throws of passion.

  4. Very pretty! I've been looking for Ebony Damselflies (the most colorful around here) but haven't seen them this year.

  5. These are beautiful and you got some fantastic shots of them. I saw one at the beach a few weeks ago but couldn't capture it in flight.
