Demoiselle Agrion [ calopteryx virgo ] by 


Taken along my local river last month, it was very hard to get shots of these as they didn’t land for very long and I was sinking in the mud.

River Wey, Lindford, Hampshire, uk.
Nikon d60 70 -300mm sigma lens.

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Oh, so worth the mud, right? This is extraordinary and then some. When my jaw dropped I think a fly flew in my mouth….LOL Made you smile, right? :) I love the color~ Warm Regards, Peechez

  • Yep! made me smile, that would have made a great picture. A friend of mine opened his wallet the other day while we were in the pub and a moth flew out, you can imagine the comments he got.Thanks Peechez will drop by later.

    l keep looking for these but not much luck so far, great shot

    lol lynn

  • I know what you mean Lynn, I came across these by pure chance the other day while out posting a letter. Their wings were catching the sun light and I rushed home and got the camera while they were still about.

    Sorry to hear about your ankle, hope you are on the mend

    lol lynn

  • I can see myself getting really frustrated being on these crutches but hopefully it will only be a month so I should be able to do some shots from the garden until I mend, thanks Lynn.
