I found this gorgeous little clanger residing at the pottom of my pool at the weekend, fortunately it was calm and sunny and I could rescue him and have a photo shoot. Today is appalling, rain, gale force winds, trees down in the garden, I guess I'm going to have a lot of clearing up to do when it finally abates Sad

Carol, what are these little insects, they look quite big to me. Lovely capture here, like all 4 of the images. Do they bite or nip...

Sorry to hear how awful the weather is, batten down the hatches....
