I love your dragonfly photo Jan. That one is one of my favourites and I always try to get photos of them when I see them. We have a similar one in the UK called a Banded Demoiselle.

Regards,

Everytime I sees one of the Woodlands, I can hear them making music. I managed to get the ringtone from SANParks and so the sound is not far anymore.

Great pic, Jan andthank you for keeping us entertained. :thumbs_up:
If all goes well, we will be there at LP in 8 months time... :hmz:
