They say blue & green should never be seen, but rules are made for breaking
Here's one of my better efforts of an Emerald Damselfy from yesterday's little jolly in the Forest of Dean with fellow EPZ members Gary D and Glostopcat (Ed).
Turned into a good fun day, Gary's a cabbie and Ed's from Gloucestershire, so you think they'd know they're way around a bit, but no we got lost
Which ended up with me having to walk twice as far as I'd normally would, but we found what we were looking for in the end, eventually, after I took charge! I think both of them would get lost as soon as they turned out of the end of their own streets. By the time we'd got back to the car for a drink and a cup of tea, my legs and spine had had enough
and I didn't wanna play anymore
So I left them two herberts to it and came back home
Never mind still had a good time and a good old natter and a laugh, even managed to do a bit of photography. But I got lazy because the weather was so hot and the light so good, I decided to leave the tripod behind in the car.....Big mistake! I'll never learn
As a consequence what images I did take were a little bit ropey, never mind, it's not bad for a hand held image.
We decided next time we meet up we'll do it on my home turf, well at least there won't be any possibilities of us all getting lost!
Gary had his first large Dragonfly yesterday, a 4 Spot Chaser, so he was more than happy......But I said I'll show him the real monsters (Hawkers) down on the Somerset Levels! That's assuming of course the old beggar can find his way out of Wales without getting lost
Thanks for looking in and the kind comments on yesterday's micro moth.......Ade
