New Damsels (and Newts!)

I spied a couple of Damselflies in the garden the other day, and of course I took photos. I though they were just the standard Azures or Common Blues but on later inspection I discovered I’d found a new Damsel, so introducing … the Dainty Damselfly

And while hanging around our garden pond looking for frogs, we were delighted to find NEWTS! So exciting! These are a few photos of baby newts but we also spied at least one adult in there as well 😀
