The Sentinels

A picture post...

Sentinels in the evening sun.

Blue Stinger!

Getting the balance right....

Delicate Blue Hunter.

Spare green wings?


The Banded Demoiselles [Calopteryx splendens] Caloptéryx éclatant are really rather magnificent in the strong evening light.

Click on the pictures to "view on black"...

Thanks Amelia,
I also posted these to flickr and that picture has received the best tally of favourites I've had...
I thought your picture of K in beekeeping garb with flamethrower was wonderful... extreme beekeeping!!
