Right now it’s hard to believe that in summer this pond will dry up around the edges leaving stranded lilies and cracked mud behind. It’s quite serene there for now and so close to home that we have the luxury of being able to go there when ever we like. No parking issues, no fuel bills…no stress!

This dragonfly was hard to capture. My camera wanted to focus on the grasses and it was almost like it couldn’t work out what it was I was trying to get in focus. I was really pleased to come home and see how well this had come out. It’s motivation to keep trying anyway!
