    Went out this afternoon looking for Dragons and Damsels. The only Dragons around were Brown Hawkers which in my opinion are the hardest of all to photograph (which means I have never managed it) so no joy there. There were at least four species of Damsels around and I managed to get a few decent shots.

    Variable Damsel, male:
