Dragons


Not done a lot as Sue has been out of action following an operation.
Today was her first trip out and we spent an hour at Chyverton NR.
I did spend a couple of hours with Monty in the week which
 was very enjoyable and accounts for the first two shots.

  3. Super selection John. You are obviously seeing far more species in the south-west than the south-east.

    Best wishes to Sue.

  5. So sorry to hear that Sue's been unwell - I wish her a speedy recovery!

    A lovely set of images, well up to your usual unbeatable standard! I'm not seeing many dragonflies/damselflies up in this neck of the woods yet. It looks like you're doing rather better in the south-west.
