Banded Demoiselle

The first of the Damselflies have emerged along the riverbank in the local Parkland.

The Banded Demoiselle likes to settle on Stinging Nettles and is not easily approached, especially at the beginning of the season. Their habitat is mostly along side rivers and streams.
Some 45mm long the flight period ranges between May and August.
