[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another humor in nature picture. It is one of those pictures that I took by chance, looked at later and start to laugh.

In this case I fee sorry for the lonely male "Familiar Bluet" having missed out on the fun.

On this day there were 100's of these damselflies swarming around a small pond. Because they were more interested in finding a mate they didn't care that I was up close to them.

Enjoy - bob

Hi Bob!

Many thanks for this welcome break to all these "serious" postings. Indeed, I had to smile when I saw the picture and to laugh after having read your notes. A superb picture, one of those surprises that nature offers us. You took full advantage of it and had the good idea to share it with us.

Many thanks and kind regards
