a female beautiful demoiselle, with characteristic metallic green body, bronze coloured tip to abdomen and white patch near tip of wings. The British Dragonfly society is worth a visit (see link) for more information about these insects.

I can't tell you how much pleasure it gives me to discover a grass snake in our garden and to be able to photograph it basking in the sun (the first sun for two weeks I am told). It is lying on a compost heap where apparently they often lay their eggs. It is a sign that our garden is supporting the sort of wildlife diversity that we have long hoped for. The bulge towards the tail is either an unfortunate amphibian, or perhaps some eggs. Long but not venomous, and sometimes called ringed because of the yellow collar around its neck.

we are back, to a very wet soggy and miserable scene. At least we have had two weeks of warm sun on our backs. Spot is very pleased to be back on line but the only things to photo are bedraggled plants and puddles. Is this our punishment for starting the industrial revolution?
