Macro Male Banded Demoiselle,calopteryx splendens.Explored

A male Banded Demoiselle damselfly captured at Styal Country Park.This area is excellent for damselflies and I have seen a few species already this year so the area should be even better in June.This species is quite large,approx 45mm and easily spotted in flight but despite the metallic colours can be difficult to see when they land
