Here I am at work, 35 in the shade and no end. They are making up for the spring in one go I think.
So I sit here longing to be right there , with my feet in the stream (if truth be told I got badly bitten, in spite of hundreds of these beautiful demoiselles.)
so here is a banded agrion in the l'isle river near Bourdeilles.

The iridescent greens really show up so well, and a fine shot with the reflections: very warm here still and after a 2 hour walk with Brodie I feel like sticking my feet in your stream too.

Very lovely I do like these delicate demoiselles, they're so pretty. And so well captured on the flower.
And yes, I'd like to be there too. Smile

35 degrees!! Sheesh...and I thought I had it bad over here Grin 35's very harsh, Annette. I'm not surprised you wanna jump in. Good way to escape the stupid mozzies too!

Superb shot you've got and I really like the abstractiness in the water. I never knew there were yellow water lilies! Cool Smile

At least Annette didn't get to see you in your safari shorts and shirt at work, your spindly pasty white legs would have been quite a sight to behold, i've seen better legs hanging out of a birds nest!Tongue
