The air above the local river was alive with these Banded Demoiselle Calopteryx splendens as they courted on the banks. I found this happy couple making a love heart. The male is the shiny blue one on the right, the golden-green female on the left.
After a few minutes the male flew off leaving the female behind in the sun.
