Sheltering in the grass ( Explored )

My favourie damselfly - the Banded Demoiselle - Calopteryx splendens.

Photographed on a rather windy day. Damselflies tend to seek out a sheltered spot on such days and I was lucky enough to find this one sheltering on a grassy riverbank.

You will find a second capture beneath this one. Please view on black - thanks !
