One from the archives today I'm afraid, so I do apologise in advance for that. Unable to get out and about at the moment due to my spinal injuries giving me holy hell......Hence the reason I've not been on much over the last few days....

Regards to all.....Ade

That's the spirit ...take it out on us...lol

I'm sure if the weather gets warmer your aches will improve - well at least you might be able to get out and about a bit.

A fantastic dragon shot...roll on the summer.

If I recall, you were very helpful, during my learning curveWink

A super capture Ade - I always think these look a bit evil though - not as 'cuddly' as some dragonflies!! Good light on the wings & body especially. Hope your aches & pain ease a bit for you. Lou

P.S. Have uploaded a version on the blue tit where I have cloned out the offending branch - see what you think? L
