This little damselfly had just emerged and was scrambling its way up the blade of grass to get to the light, in order to dry off. The conditions were quite windy and the creature was being tossed about. The exuvia was clearly visible, but inaccessible to the camera.
The depth of field is not what I would have hoped for, but I had to sacrifice some depth in order to keep the shutter speed at an acceptable level. By the way he made it to the top.
Thanks for all your c&cs on the chaffinch, they are much appreciated.
