Long past time to put up some images lurking in the "to go" folder. So here is a large Red Damselfly from July this year taken at Boshain Estate Helford.

Thank you all once again for the comments and clicks and special thanks to Eric, Lillian and Herman for their user awards.

All the best Nick

Sprouts? That's a lacecap hydrangea! But the damselfly steals the show.
