Description

Isle of Wight Dragonfly

Well, back at the Isle of Wight pond on Bookham Common this time we see a dragonfly resting ( looks to me like he is a singer and the dandelion is it's microphone ). The water at the moment has a strange muddy look to it, but the Isle of Wight Pond does look different each time you visit throughout the year. One disappointment though was as I approached the pond I could see a couple of herons swooping around over the pond but by the time I got there they were heading back into the trees while one went and sat on the the post that I have photographed it on before. I shall have to return to try and catch one of the herons in flight but will have to take the Canon for that- trying to pan something in flight with a bridge camera is just not easy !

I have to agree about the singer and the microphone Vince. I think the muddy pond makes a very nice background. Shame about the herons flying off, but that's what they have a habit of doing.

Cracking shot Vince. Must be a blues singer, presumably getting inspiration from 'Muddy Waters'!!!
