By JohnoP
This is my first upload - taken at Studland beach - hobbled about on one leg for this following recent broken ankle! I think it is a Ruddy Darter - comments welcome?

Welcome to the madhouse, sorry, I mean site.

Nice opening shot of the Ruddy Darter. And I see you shot it with the 18-55 lens. How on earth did you get that close with that lens?
