Wow! I was sooo pleased with your reception of the humble white butterfly.
Very special thanks to Andy, Jason and Joline for the UAs Smile

Here is a banded demoiselle or agrion, Calopteryx splendens, splendidly posing on a peach leaf.
First time I have seen one in our garden, I suppose with all the rain they venture further from the waters. V 2 is the whole beastie.

Two fantastic close ups of this male banded demoiselle, the detail and colours are fabulous. You've done really well to get so close as they are not the most approachable of creatures
