Male Banded Demoiselle (Calopteryx splendens)

By DerekL  
Thank you for your votes/comments on yesterday's upload of a Painted Lady butterfly, especially to Una (ukgubbi) for her valued User award, all much appreciated.
Here is another shot of a male Banded Demoiselle, that I took alongside the River Tame at RSPB Middleton Lakes last week.
