Pond Life

One of the problems of decorating in the house is the limits it places on getting out taking photos.

Well the pond I built last year is providing my rewards for effort spent. Here are a few images of some the species that are dropping by at the moment. Although the frog is very firmly resident along with numerous froglets, and Smooth Newts.

I had my first sighting of an Emperor dragonfly a week or so ago, although sadly not to photograph. A few more butterfly species are calling by as well with Speckled Wood, Small Tortoiseshell, Large White and Comma all seen in the last couple of days.

Blue Tailed, Blue and Large Red damsel flies are shown below, with a Common Frog as the last image.

  1. Like the way you have caught the 'fingers'(correct name) on the frog, and the angle, though he looks as if he is going to explode. Seen some emperors today and got my first decent great crested grebe.
