I saw these 2 dragonflies lurking in the murky waters and immediately thought of Mick. ...Wink

Yesterday was a really happy day as I was given 2 user awards for my ladytree image.
A sincere thankyou to Mark (marktc) & Malcolm (saltireblue).
Hoping no-one suffered nightmares last night.

Have a great weekend everyone!

You can see where the aircraft designers got their idea so many decades ago, and the rest is history as they say. Tremendous work Barbara not just one but two flying in formation. Can the leave smoke trails in the sky?

Great shot, Barbs. The only variety of Dragonfly I am likely to see around here - I have one quite similar hovering above my ornamental water feature!
