Many thanks for all the interest, comments and clicks on 'Forest Fright', most of you found the 4 tree monsters, the one in the top of the tree was hardest to find but well done and thanks for looking.

Today just a simple little Damsel which I took some time ago, hope you like him.

Fran

Thank you 'Glostopcat' for identifying this 'male banded demoiselles'

Very well captured, Fran, excellent colour and detail. This little chappie proves very elusive to me, he just will not settle long enough for me to get a piccy Sad Carol
