Sunny afternoon in the garden, and I’ve seen a pair of Large Red Damselflies by our pond. They kindly sat very still for their photos to be taken. Despite the name, they are not that big – 4 or 5 cm long. I was even able to get one to walk onto my finger for a moment or two – they are not nearly as flighty as butterflies.
I was surprised to see two huge tadpoles in the pond too; I haven’t seen them since they’d just hatched out of the frogspawn weeks ago. I’m glad some of them haven’t been eaten by the newts.
It’s too hot to run. Maybe I’ll go out later on… or maybe not. 🙂
