You must have the patience of a saint to capture these Carol because over here they never stay still long enough. Fine captures

It's a wonder you managed to spot this damsel fly, Carol, as it looks as if it would be well camouflaged amongst the dried stems and grasses.
3 fine captures, all in fine detail.
