Nearly Side On!

By KarenFB
My daughter and I went for a walk beside Tiverton canal yesterday - we saw a lot of butterflies, dragonflies and damsels (including this Banded Demoiselle). I would have liked to have been a little more 'side-on', but beggars can't be choosers. My daughter persuaded me to keep this little beauty (my finger was poised over the delete button!). The background is across the canal and deeply shaded woods.Smile

Good enough for a keeper Karen.
Love the iridescence and the background complements the colors nicely.

I had to resort to getting up very early in the morning, and finding them in semi comatose state whilst they warmed up !
Thereafter these Banded and the Beautiful Demoiselles are rather quick.
