Bands of Beauty!

Calopteryx splendens

Banded Demoiselle

With the winter months nearly upon us in England, Its that time of the year to reflect on a few warmer days back in summer when I was in the warm sunshine photographing the Banded Demoiselle at Westbere Lakes in Kent. One of the spectacular sights to see is the males flying out over the river chasing each other showing off their emerald bodies and banded wings. I spent some time back in May watching just this sight and at various points they would fly on to a favourite perch or piece of reed and provide me with a few photo opportunities. Up close they are just a spectacular sight and it was pleasing to see excellent numbers at this site throughout the next few months.
