Good Morning All,

Thanks for stopping by and comments on my Juvenile Greenfinch, much appreciated.

The other morning when I took the image of my Broad Bodied Chaser I went out later the same day with my mate Platchet - to see if we could bag some more...the place was a little quiet so we moved on to another of his small wildlife parks (lol) and checked out 5 ponds...all very quiet too until we was just about to walk away from the last pond and came across one of these...had a great time getting shots of another 1st for me... a 4 spotted chaser.

Another wet one in South Wales, don't think there will be much chance of getting the camera out today.

If you've got rain, I think that may give me about 3 hours till it starts here Smile
Great detail on the head and front wings. Very well shot with a zoom and tubes. I really like this combination as it really gives clear short dof from a safe distance.

An excellent shot - an interesting combination with the extension tube - must investigate this one further
