hundreds of Dragonflies of all shapes,sizes and colours seen on the local canal this evening,
i only managed to get a few shots of them,
as most were constantly on the wing making it almost impossible to get a photo of them :(
heres a few of those i did manage to get :) with a few of them in the mating position too,

brilliant ! i like the shadows in the first group, it took me a moment to realise they were indeed shadows and not some darker coloured ones :oops:

well done for getting any photos at all, i'm never able to get one to sit still long enough to get a photo :(
and the pics with shadows made me look twice before i realised they were shadows :oops:
we had a walk down the Grantham Canal a few years ago, and i remember there being lots of dragonflies around then, with lots of the very large ones darting about, seems like they like canals :)
