Chasing dragonflies

Looking back at these pictures I took in August, it seems I spent a fair amount of my time chasing dragonflies.

Of course taking the kids out of the equation because let's face it, I spend a fair amount of time chasing around after them too.  Well more like charging, but whose splitting hairs.

I love everything there is about dragonflies.  From their iridescent colours and the way they swoop and hover, down to the way their fairy like wings seem mechanically attached to their bodies.

In fact - for me - they are the nearest thing to a fairy for me.
