A sequence of event . . . .

Haven't been dragonhunting this weekend though did try for the singing wood warbler in chopwell woods this afternoon. Heard it singing ok but failed to lay eyes on it, must be getting desperate to attract a mate 'cos it was belting out its rattling song continually, and has been all day according to the Birdman who photographed it earlier (see his blog).

Never mind, back to Friday and a sequence of photos capturing a tandem pair of red damsels TURNING CIRCLES as the female lost grip of the stem they were on and they almost toppled off into the pond, but the male somehow swung around and regained a grip on the stalk . . . .


Look I can see our house from here . . .

. . . oops . . .

. . . going . . .

. . . going . . .

. . . timberrrrrr!! . . .

. . . dive, dive, dive . .

 
. . . no going back now . . .

. . . how did he do that ? too quick for the camera . . .

 . . . a bit of a tangle . . .

. . . right, this time get a grip woman! . . .

Never a dull moment in the exciting world of Odonata, just wish our summer was a bit longer.
