Banded Demoiselle (Calopteryx splendens) Wings on a Spiders Web

Often I would find the remains of demoiselles on spiders webs at dawn. The spiders appear to consume everything apart from the wings which they leave. This was the last day I found demoiselles on the river before the chill of autumn set in.
