Dragons and Damsels...

On a very wet and dull Sunday, a friend and me went-a-hunting for dragons at a nearby National Trust reserve. Despite the overcast and somewhat chilly conditions, there had obviously beena recent emergence of darters, plus there were a few damsels flitting about over nearby grassland and ditches...
