Photo Information
I was hoping for some Kingfisher shots today but had to settle for this

Not bad for macro shooting with the Bigma!

Just the one Ken, those in the know thought it had just emerged this morning.
Saw a few dozen spotted Chasers, still seeing the blue and azure damsels and had the addition of some reds today, spotted a banded damoiselle which is very rarely seen in the area so things are looking up.
