Banded damoiselle on wildflower

Although not technically Plants for Bugs work, some of you may recall we were involved last spring with the selection and sowing of a wildflower meadow area close to our site at the end of Howard's Field at Wisley. Well, I am delighted to say it is starting to come of age. I took these pics in a sunny moment earlier this week;
