Dragonflies & Damselflies
Currently, we have seen great numbers of dragonflies and damselflies throughout the gardens. On any walk we could see perhaps 10, and there are some locations where you can see 10 of the same species flying around together.
They make excellent models, often sitting still on a perch, and most people can get up close to capture some great closeups. Even if they do fly away, they will often come back to the same spot.
If you ever have a chance, I invite you to watch these amazing hunters in action. They have incredible agility and lightning-fast reflexes to catch unsuspecting insects. It’s pretty incredible to witness.
