Red Letter Day!

By KarenFB
For me, Tuesday was a Red Letter Day! My middle daughter came to visit for the first time since March. As we went into lockdown she told us she was in the early weeks of pregnancy, I've been so worried for her! But she has stayed indoors all this time and her hubby has been fantastic looking after her and making sure she was safe!

It was wonderful to sit out in the garden (it was just warm enough!), watching all the butterflies and bees. We also had this gorgeous Beautiful Demoiselle come to visit - I couldn't resist a quick photo! Smile

Beautiful capture, good luck with your daughters pregnancy, and I hope when the baby is born you'll be able to give it a big cuddle.

I love these but trying to photograph them can be a challenge but well done to you. Good luck for the coming birth.

Thank you for your vote and comment Steve - this is a Beautiful Demoiselle (the whole wing is blue), the Banded Demoiselle has a distinctive band of blue on its wings. Smile
