Just a beautiful red Damselfly from our great day out at Bosahan Valley Garden on the South bank of the Helford River.

Starting another School Computer suite on Monday morning, so no peace for the wicked.

All the very best to you all.

Awesome shot Nick, excellent use of vignette to focus attention on the damselfly, the subtle shadow detail enhances this excellent capture, first class upload.

Regards

Trev.

The little damsel stands out well on the light blue of the lacecap hydrangea, two for the price of one really, excellent.
