Catching The Red Eye


Catching The Red Eye, originally uploaded by julian sawyer.


As there was just one Large Red Damselfly (10/10 for the name Mr.Scientist!) catching it wasn't easy. Then of course I wanted it on something green because I thought the setting would be nicer. Oh, and a bit of Sunshine would be good and were rapidly losing that!
I didn't manage too many shots and most of those weren't very good, but I quite liked this one.
