Natural lines

Skimmer

You may recognise this fellow from July Blues, he’s a skimmer and had taken up home in my mum’s pond for a few days whilst he waited for the females to turn up. He couldn’t resist the camera, unlike the females who never settled. They were too busy mating and laying eggs for me to get a good photograph of their bright yellow lines, but I did manage a ‘not bad’ shot of one female mid flight creating lines in the pond.

Female Skimmer

By the way the WordPress gremlins have reappeared, as they so often seem to do around this point in the challenge. Pingbacks are hiding and even worse some of you have ended up in spam. I have hopefully rescued everyone but if you have shared a comment or square in the past week and noticed I have not replied or left a comment, then let me know. I would hate to miss any of you.
