Clouds of Banded Demoiselles…

By May 23, 2017Blog

Between the more predictable clouds of rain at the weekend Jan Shields was fortunate to see ‘clouds of Banded Demoiselles’ on the River Severn in Shrewsbury. A male (left) and female are shown here with the white pseudopterostigma (false wing spot) just visible on the female.

Jan also saw some Clubtails – this fabulous shot showing a rather large Mayfly lunch being devoured by a male! (don’t forget you can click on the images to see a larger copy). The photo on the far left also nicely illustrates the clubbed tail of the males giving this species it’s common name.
