My first 'real' walk in three weeks (hubby has been ill, but he's a lot better now). I walked all around the farm, checking on what has been growing/not growing, seeing how full the pond is, checking what has been going on. The sun is shining, a light cooling breeze (okay, it's a bit more then a breeze, but I enjoyed it just the same). *Sigh*.............heaven.

I didn't take many photos on my walk, just the odd butterfly (mostly Meadow Browns at the moment) and Blue Damsels (just a few reds around).

On my return to the house, there staking out his claim was a Broad-bodied Chaser by the garden pond - an hour and half walk, just to find something really special on my doorstep!! Lol. Nature has the last laugh!

Edit: I did try to remove the blade of grass in post processing, but made such a hash of his wing I decided to leave it! Smile

Fantastic colour and detail well taken and edited, I must admit that cloning out that leaf would be way above my skills Tongue

Wow! That's a beautiful shot - glad you left the grass in there.
Sometimes you have to walk away for a while and let nature refill the space you just left.

Did I say wow?

Very cool Grin
