Male Banded Demoiselle

Males are usually territorial, but large numbers can sometimes be found on lush bankside plants and floating objects. They court females by opening their wings and performing an aerial dance. They are usually found in or near pools, ponds, canals and quiet rivers with muddy bottoms located in open country.
