Anyone would think I was obsessed with Damselflies – I’ve just realised the featured image for the last 3 posts has been a damsel! However it’s not just damsels – I am also a little obsessed with Dragonflies! And joy of joys I saw my first dragon of the year at the weekend 🙂 This was,…… Continue reading First of the season
This little damsel was spotted at the weekend. I thought it was a freshly emerged Common Blue female but it turns out it’s an immature male Azure.

So when I saw the photo challenge was “fresh” all I could think of were cool showers…… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh
