    stunning photos Gaynor, it's great to finally get into a spell of warm sunshine and see all the insects around.

    You guys are stealing a march on me with all these dragonflies. My patch is still very quiet - not even seen a Large Red damselfly yet. They are usually amongst the first to be seen.

    I did get a male Banded Demoiselle today.

    and a slightly better shot of a female than my first post.

    I shall have to start visiting other dragonfly hotspots to see what I can find

    Lovely pics TJ, at least you know the name of yours:-)   I don't know about warmer this way, it has been a funny old Spring with wind and rain most of the time except for a couple of odd days along the way.  

    Alan the Four Spotted Chaser is beautiful - I am going to have to send off for brochure on Dragonflies etc to keep up with the id's.

    Lot to learn
