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...
