Complete tease

Fascinating creatures like the dragonfly will soon be emerging from our ponds. Many a fine afternoon can be wasted in pursuing dragonflies until they come to rest, only to fly away as
soon as you point the camera in their direction.

Admired for their beauty the dragonflies are also excellent at keeping down other garden bugs. I'm hoping mine develop a taste for the horsefly and deerfly we too often encounter, here in the Mediterranean Garden Spain. 


  1. It's a beautiful picture. Worth the pursuit and the waiting! Let's hope the warmer weather brings out the dragonflies. All the best.

  2. I love this picture, how wonderful!
