First Beautiful Demoiselles.

At this time of year a visit to Shalfleet Stream is a treat as many wildflowers are in bloom along wooded banks of this meandering stream.In particular the drifts of Wild Garlic are a sight to behold ,as they attract  butterflies and other insects to their flowers.My first walk along the stream today was rewarded with three Beautiful Demoiselles,all immature males.It will not be long before they mature and along with other males we can sit and watch them 'dance' over the water in aerial combat.A true sign of early summer.
