Beautiful shot of a beautiful insect. I can see why they inspired Lalique.

Well done, may it be the first of many.

Decades ago when I lived in Sydney I'd escape to idyllic rivers.
You'd paddle for a bit and then stop for cup of tea and some herbs. 
Significant other's friend expressed concern about a pretty blue dragonfly that was hovering about.
Na you don't have to worry about them, they've got no nasty bits three of us assured her.
Then the dragon fly did one of those sudden direction changes they do, straight at her head.
Ah, happy times...
Take my advice, don't listen to me.

I sincerely hope she was a female and dropped some eggs.

I have a small wildlife pond in my garden but getting photos of its contents can be difficult. So I bought a small 12 litre aquarium which allows me to get close to he underwater 'action'.

I did a bit of 'guerilla gardening' today in my local woodland stream. I planted 50 or so Yellow Iris seeds in the banks of a meander area. It'll stabilise the banks and slow the erosion in years to come.

My mother has decided she wants to try gardening, even going as far as to sign up for online classes. I only hope she doesn't try to recruit me as I have unwillingly indulged in mass plantacide on many occasions.
