Atcham - Damsels and Demoiselles

I was hoping for Common Clubtail but a check of the fishermans car park near Atcham produced good numbers of Banded Demoiselles on the riverside vegetation.

Males with their iridescent abdomen and wings glistening in the patchy sunlight.

Females – less showy to us but quite attractive to male Banded Demoiselles nonetheless!

See what I mean.....

There were just as many (mostly teneral) White-legged Damselfly about too.

More images to follow......
