Good Morning to you all,

Firstly, thank you for all your wonderful comments and votes following yesterdays upload.

Secondly, I arrived at Chipstead Lakes yesterday lunchtime, and I was quickly settled in. It didi not take me too long before I was up and out with my camera. Amongst other creatures I came across this beautiful pair of Damsel Fly's hiding amongst the reeds.

Finally I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me who knows. I shall where possible try and look at and comment on your uploads, however my Dongle's Signal is somewhat intermittent.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

These two are so delicately coloured that I doubt if I would have spotted them: the pair with their perch make a pleasing composition within the frame, Nathan.
Have a nice day.
Ronnie.
