Dragonfly

According to the Woodland Trust:
"Dragonflies eat other insects, such as flies, midges and mosquitoes. They will also take butterflies and even smaller dragonflies. Prey is normally caught in mid-air, with the dragonfly using its long legs to catch its quarry. the food will them be carried to a perch where it is eaten."
Ancestors of present day dragonflies living 300 million years ago had wingspans of up to 28 inches: you won't catch me flying around the back garden!

Edit: It's a damselfly! They do eat other insects and have many similarities to dragonflies.

Quite a pleasant evening tonight. Not quite the sunset I'd hoped for, but still very nice to get out.

I've used duck duck go extensive scientific and mathematical methods to estimate the number of leaves on a mature beech tree. The number? Around a quarter of a million, give or take a few. The beech trees where I took my photos sometimes make it seem as if it's raining leaves. Magic!

The Beatles in Basingstoke

The fab four look really pleased to be on the Magical Mystery Tour bus in Basingstoke with the Stag and Hounds pub in the background. If there's one place I can't imagine them visiting it's Basingstoke!

Thanks to Ken for unearthing more information.

I came across these photos today, taken in 2005. They were shot on Fuji Velvia slide film, which even today can give digital cameras a run for their money.
