Fantastic pics Susan , such wonderful colours
Beautiful. Did you use a tri- or monopod?
Gaynor: Thanks :-) Go down to the stream behind your place with your camera and you could take photos like this - the place will be crawling with Banded Demoiselles in late spring and summer.Ken: Thank you. They are all hand held (and Simon took some of them).
Stunning photos Susan and Simon.Pour parodier Pierre Corneille dans Le Cid, vos coups d'essai sont des coups de maître!
Summery pix on a grey morning... great!!When I read the word essay, though, I expected male [got male], males round a female [got males but no female], mating, egg laying, nymph, etc, etc... the complete life-cycle wotsit.... but got a lovely poem about flitting metallic blue arrows over a gentle stream on a warm summer's day... I could almost turn off the heating. [But I don't think I will just yet, having read Ken's post this morning!]
gorgeous color to see flitting about!
