Beautiful Demoiselle (male)

Calopteryx virgo

Description:

The male usually has much more extensive pigmentation on the wings than other Calopteryx species in its range: in the south east of its range (the Balkans and Turkey) the wings are entirely metallic blue while in other areas, there are clear areas at the base and tip of the wing. Immature insects often have much paler, browner wings. They have metallic blue-green bodies and blue-green eyes.

Da, bar za mužjaka, prilično je mračan i kao da nešto želi obviti u mrak! Čine se kao idealan par!

A on kao neki mađioničar ili svakako netko kojem je noć draža od dana!
