Here in the northern hemisphere the summer is soon to be officially taking the first steps in the direction of autumn. The mere thought of the onslaught of the dreaded A&W words was enough inspiration to drive me out the front door for a walk. Well, that and a few other reasons.
Yesterday we actually saw the blue sky for quite a few hours. We saw our own shadows! Yep… seems August is going to be a little more summer-like than July… and June before… and even May before that! OK… ok… I know you’re getting sick of me banging on about the lack of summer but I promise… yesterday we glimpsed a few hours of what we’ve missed so far this year.
One of my best snaps was a male Banded Demoiselle. I’ve never managed to get one so when I fluked this beauty as he was landing I even got him with his wings open. Fun!
