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

Very nice Nige, I have only seen reds here sadly I lost some nice ones but I might have one or two from todays outing.
In reply to James:
Wow, very nice Gaynor not seen a Dragonfly yet this year.
Very nice capture Alan.
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

They are beauties Tony and Jim, I'll have to start thinking about getting the macro out of the lens bag !
