Calopteryx virgo is the name of this beautiful female demoiselle, on the prowl above the little stream feeding the mozzie lake.
I met Hannah today and we had a great time with the local critters, showed her my favourite hunting ground so maybe I can get her to join here Smile

Many thanks to Herman, Ron and Dave for the lovely awards. had NEVER expected this for a landscape.
Will send you all a PM Smile after half a day of struggling with the internet. here is the 3g working again at last.. So we got no land line now but two 3g contracts which combined are almost the speed of the Malaysian jungle 3g.

Beautifully detailed and incredibly predatory. I would love to visit your mozzie lake, wearing protective clothing of course!
