Star of the Month

Northern Damselfly - maleGolden-ringed Dragonfly Cordulegaster boltonii is a large and distinctive species.  It has a western distribution in Britain and Scotland and occurs along streams where males spend their time patrolling up and down, making them very noticeable.  They are often found with Beautiful Demoiselles, another attractive species.  Golden-winged Dragonflies seem to have a habit of catching bees and wasps; much more so than other large species.
