The Beautiful Demoiselle

As its name suggests this Demoiselle is a stunningly handsome damselfly.

The Beautiful variety of this damselfly is usually first on the wing of the two United Kingdom Demoiselle species. It can be seen from mid / late April in the recent mild springs right through to late August.

This is considered a species of streams and rivers; however it can also be seen on canals and even ponds and lakes if adjacent to flowing water.

The males are easily distinguishable from the striking Banded Demoiselle by their fully coloured wings. Their abdomens and thorax are a stunning metallic blue / green.

Hi Les,
A nice shot of this beauty, good colours and a nice natural pose in a nice bg, I find that the actual subject seems slightly out of focus or its got very slight movement.
TFS regards Bill.

Hi Les,the demoiselle is really beautiful,but i must to be honest,the details are good only on the wings,the body and the face are completely out of focus..no problem,nobody is perfect,and this metallic blue is great! Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hello Les,
This is a very nice species of damselfly. The colors are great and the POV is very good. The body is moving or out of focus. Very interesting metallic colors.
