I thought this Damsel only lives in the tropics (silly me)
The bigger my surprise when I saw them at a stream close by.
I really like the way they seem to dance over the water in a small group.
Then that color... wow so beautiful.
The only little downside is that I can only photograph them
from the small bridge downwards.
The banks are full of nettles and almost impossible to get to.
It has been pretty windy over the past few days so I am
looking forward to a day when there is hardly any.
Still VERY pleased to see them at all :)

Eastern eyed click beetle (never seen one before-- roughly 1 1/2 in long).

Wasps and bees seem to have different strategies in drinking. Wasps land somewhere on the water and float around like an air mattress and then slurp
I especially like the right front leg on the water.

Bees seem to have a different strategy. The are closer to the short and try to get something to hold on and then use their tongue.

Here Comes Trouble

A pair of leafcutter Anthidium bees (Family megachilidae) square off in a battle for supremacy over a tub of lavender on my terrace. These bees will patrol a territory or food source and fight all incomers, no matter what species or size, to ensure their claim to the females that visit.
