Comments(5) # Madame-Demoiselle london e17

The week before last I showed you the male Banded Demoiselle and I'm glad to say I've now come across a female too. They're not quite as obvious or striking as the males as they lack the wing band that gives the species its name but she does have lovely dreamy eyes. She wasn't at the same location as the male, this was at Walthamstow reservoirs where there were also several other males so hopefully a breeding population (there is slow running water at the reservoirs as favoured by these delightful creatures).
