Fairies

View On Black

 

The male Beautiful Demoiselle (Calopteryx virgo) has to be one of the most spectacular of the Damsels with their iridescent blues and greens

 

Along with the Banded Demoiselle they are the only Damsels in the UK to have coloured wings. You could quite believe their are fairies at the bottom of the garden when you see them in flight
