A Pretty Picture For Sunday - Damselfly
Just basking in the sun on a nettle leaf. Just the sort of picture Kailacat likes to take!
I have seen some gorgeous damselflies this week, and have done my homework to find out what they are.
This is a banded demoiselle, calopteryx splendens. Handsome as he is, another species has the edge, the beautiful demoiselle, calopteryx virgo, but the photos I took of those weren't quite up to scratch. Next week perhaps, weather permitting...
