A blog on gardening, life by the sea, photography and wildlife

Around this time of year we often find them visiting the garden, they seem to be attracted to the warmth radiating from the metal plate of the sundial when the sun is out.
We are lucky that we have the very large acreage of Langney Levels a marshy area on the doorstep a site of special scientific interest much visited by the local school children where I am sure the dragonflies and damselflies originate from.

I set the camera to aperture priority and selected f25 to try and get as much as possible in focus


  1. Terrific pictures! Sadly I rarely ever see dragonflies. Cheers, Flighty.

  2. I saw one flying round our pond today - I love to see them - can't say I've ever seen a red one like yours though. Lovely.
