Another of the Damselfly reflection images taken on the small pond at Monkton NR earlier in the week on a Kent photo tour with Terry.

Got fairly wet taking these - laying on the slope of the bank and holding the camera at just above water level to achieve the reflection - it was so hot that drying off afterwards wasn't too much of a problem and well worth the effort.
