Damselfly, Banded Demoiselle, male, on Forget-Me-Nots, Little Paxton, 2012-05-24 005 reduced
Description:

I hadn't thought of this before, but I suppose a male demoiselle is a contradiction in terms! I suppose when the name was coined it wasn't possible to tell whether this is the male of the species. Or that may be nonsense. I'm guessing.
