A fresh Beautiful Demoiselle drying in between two sticky leaves of a sticky plant. So delicate altogether, and yet he/she managed to hang on while i tried to get closer.. lucky the Demoiselle didn’t fell off.. Another lesson learned as a photographer: don’t interrupt your subject/environment too much!
After posting the Banded Demoiselle – which turns out to be pretty common in the Netherlands – i decided to give it another shot. Got tipped by a friend of mine and i found the Beatiful Demoiselle. Its a red list species here in the Netherlands, but luckaly it wasnt very hard to find for me.. The perfect habitat for this Dragonfly is less than 5km away from my home! If you get the change to see it, do so! Beautiful blue wings!!
