D is for Damselfly

It is ABC Wednesday today and D is for Damselfly - a little jewel on the riverbank - this picture was taken last September on the banks of the River Severn I took lots of shots to get two that were anywhere near presentable - it took ages!! - everytime I thought I was in with a chance - well you know the rest!! - the following shots were of the onlookers.
Swans swimming haughtily by me - as I perched on the River Bank
.... and the ducks scuttled past into the reeds protesting loudly - I am hopefully linking with ABC Wednesday and Nature Notes why not join me ?

  3. Damselflies and dragonflies can be a pain to photograph. When I finally get them in focus, off they go.

  6. Damselflies are the hardest they are never still, at least you are in with a chance with a dragonfly. Nice captures, I'll dream of summer now.
