I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this young damselfly taking the fly - it's a huge meal for him. I have a further image of him eating his "snack", but I don't now how to post as a version - I will post it later this week.

It reminds me of an expression that my mother used to use when I was a child -"your eyes are bigger than your belly". In this case I think that this applies.

Thanks for all your c&cs on the blue tits, and for taking the time to look.

LOL. I saw exactly the same myself the other day! A lovely bit of detail you have there, well done!

Btw to put up a second/third etc version, click on the picture in question in your p/f. Underneath, the image bottom right, you will see 'upload new version', and go from there. Hope that helps.
