Caught a dragonfly today. Four-spotted chaser. At least I think it is. But it is definitely a dragonfly. You can tell because when it sits down, it holds its wings open. Damselflies hold their wings closed, usually over the abdomen.

Settling down

While in London, I couldn’t resist visiting the Sensational Butterflies Exhibition at the Natural History Museum. We didn’t have a lot of time, but it was sooooo worth it. I’ve never seen so many beautiful creatures in my life. If by any chance you’ll go to London before September and have a spare hour. Go. See. It.

Wanted to shoot landscapes yesterday, ended up with doing marco stuff instead. As always great fun and I found a very patient grasshopper who did not mind being photographed..
