Beautiful Demoiselle / Blauflügel-Prachtlibelle

Calopteryx virgo


The 'Beautiful Demoiselle' is a European damselfly. It is often found among fast-flowing waters.The males have metallic blue wings and the females have brown iridescent wings.


I've seen it in the 'Aubinger Lohe', which is a protected landscape in the western periphery of Munich.
