Darting to and fro,

seeking sun and place to land.

Wings sparkle with light.

I like my flower and insect images dreamy. I think it is boring to make a flower or bug image that looks like it should be in a field guide so I like to create something that makes a statement when photographing them. 246 more words

Little Bradley Ponds

First visit on Saturday to Little Bradley Ponds near Bovey Tracey. Apparently its ‘dragonfly heaven’.

The morning sun had already been obscured by thick wodges of cloud by the time we got there (around 11) We sit on the spongy rim of the pond munching our hogs pud sarnies staring out at the gentle pitter patter of rain on the lily pads. 278 more words
