Post Banks of the Avon
A trip out at lunchtime today to investigate some of the more overgrown parts of the Avon near Christchurch. Battling through the stinging nettles and getting up to my waist in water paid off with a few nice encounters. Great to see four or five Hairy Dragonflies flying along the water, although they seemed to refuse to perch in sight! Finally bagged a few shots on my way back home having disturbed some resting ones. Selection of pics below:
