Female Banded Demoiselle
Still struggling with my back blips from when my PC was down. My phone refuses to put any Blips for June on! Another morning of gardening followed by an exciting trip to the tip then work with Eli. We decided to have a look at Shawbury Heath while Eli was teaching. Most of the pools had dried up and there was not a Dragonfly in sight. We were then stuck with a dilemma-not enough time to go home and then get back for Eli but no Dragonflies to photograph. We settled on a walk around Shawbury Moat and along a small stretch of the River Roden where there were clouds of Banded Demoiselles-the males were fighting over territories and several ended up in the River, escaping at the last minute and sitting on the banks to dry.
