Banded Demoiselles, Elton Water Meadows

Adult female. Amzing how the false, or psuedo-, pterostigma can disappear from some angles.

Adult female. Here the psuedo-ptrostigma is clearly visible.

Adult male. Look how the blue panel in the wing looks black from this angle.

Adult male. With the light directly on the insect the true colour of the panel and the wing venation and structure is easier to see.
