Bottoms Up - part 2 !

  • In reply to Bente S:

    Nice to hear from you, Bente, and for your lovely photo. I reckon that's a Beautiful Demoiselle (Calopteryx virgo). I don't know what that would translate into in German.

    Thank you very much. Yes, it is the Beautiful Demoiselle. In German it is the "Blaue Prachtlibelle", which means something like "Blue gorgeous Dragonfly".

    Quite a rare BU glimpsed through the reeds as he disappeared
