Calopteryx splendens male
Banded Demoiselle

The Banded Demoiselle is a large damselfly. Like all European Calopteryx species, its flight is fluttery and butterfly-like and - uniquely among European odonata - Calopteryx males engage in a dazzling display flight to attract females into their territories. The Banded Demoiselle is a common species throughout much of Europe but is absent from the South of France and Iberia (where it's replaced by C. xanthostoma) and from most of Scandinavia. Here in Italy it's a very common species which tends to occur in large numbers.

Extraordinaria nitidez. Es una foto preciosa, en la que destaca también la combinación de colores verde, amarillo y, sobre todo, ese azul metálico.
