Calopteryx splendens (Banded Demoiselle)

This lovely damselfly is an infrequent vistor, I have seen, it two or three times in the garden and once indoors as seen in one photo. The female is green with a metalic sheen and usually with out the patterned band on the wing. The male is mainly blue with a metalic sheen and has a dark patterned band or blotch on its wings.
