Nice shot Alan, Great colors and light. Now hold on with the sadly another year older business my friend! When you can put that 52nd candle on your b-day cake, then you can be sadly another year older.. Just a bit sad that is ;-) Well done. PT

This is ultimate trophy for all Odonata fans ;-) Nice composition, very good pose and quality.

What football matches by the way?
Happy Birthday Alan! I'll be leaving for Germany, Austria and Hungary today so I won't be here either! Be sure and check Fisher's contribution to the pecker category! ;^)

Wow, not only am I impressed with the picture, but also with the very useful information you provided. I currently have several larvae in my pond, a couple of which crawled indeed up on plants in my pond and then came out as adults. I had no idea actually that they'd already been in the pond for a year!
