Let the season begin! :)

I've already had my first taste of field-trips this spring (albeit a bad - cold and wet - one) and i'm looking forward to much more to come. I'm hoping it will be a great season, with lovely weather and full of great creatures to photograph - both reptiles and amphibians as well as dragonflies and damselflies.

So here's for a good start: a Blue-tailed damsel - Ischnura elegans.

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting.
