Day #900

Day #900 Title: Azure Damselfly
Location: Sandon
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I originally planned a photo of a cake with candles for today (which Dai, Leo and Mr Duck seem to have hijacked). But instead I thought I would show you this lovely little Azure Damselfly which I photographed whilst on a geocaching walk with Alistair this afternoon. It was very windy, and the plants were flapping about in the breeze. This didn’t seem to bother the damselflies, but it made photographing them very difficult! I was quite pleased with this shot from the Lumix, which doesn’t really have a dedicated macro mode. I think it’s an Azure rather than Common Blue, having checked carefully on the BDS website.
