Questing for Wings in Bournemouth

I realised I never finished posting my photos from our visit to Bournemouth last month, and this set fit will with this week’s Photo Challenge: Quest. While walking around Compton Acres, and Bournemouth Gardens I was always on a quest for something interesting to photograph. As you’ll know I did take a lot of photos of flowers and sculptures, but what I was really looking for were things with wings! With quite a lot of water about in the form of ponds and streams I was hoping for Damselflies and Dragonflies, and I wasn’t disappointed ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Beautifully done all round. Great timing, and great clarity in these shots. I’m guessing some of them might have been rather energetic and were hopping and flitting around ๐Ÿ˜€ I think those who stopped for you were eager to make friends with you ๐Ÿ™‚
