Shrewsbury - Banded Demoiselles

Whilst I saw only saw a single Clubtail, there were dozens of Banded Demoiselles on the wing and this species really takes some beating for their amazing metallic colours!

Even the females!

The males have a distinctive blue-black spot on each wing...

And very obliging too in the close up stakes!

Getting a clean background is often the hardest aspect in photographing them but a couple sat up nicely!

Stunning insects :-)
