Demoiselles

 
Although I concentrate mainly on butterflies and moths I am also very keen on all aspects of wildlife. Often whilst looking for butterflies I get diverted by another creature or insect and dragonflies living in similar habitat to the butterflies often catch the eye. I am particularly keen on the two demoiselles  that live in Britain. I had three bits of luck with these in a space of three days during July with the male and female Banded demoiselles whilst looking for White Letter Hairstreaks followed  by the spectacular male Beautiful Demoiselle whilst looking for Purple Hairstreaks.
