WHEN WE HAD SUMMER







A couple of weeks ago when we had Summer, and before the Autumn like weather we're experiencing at the moment kicked in (!!), I managed to take these images of emerging Damselflies.

So, wherever you are and whatever you're doing, I hope they go some way to brighten up your day and the rest of your weekend.
