Birthday Dragonflies.

Today is my birthday :) and it's a little bit of a special one, as this one has a "0" on the end of it lol :D

so I'm going to take myself out somewhere, not got a plan yet and because I can't drive and will be taking public transport, I can't be sure where I'll end up, By the looks of the weather report, high winds are forcast, so I might just ditch the idea of public transport and take my umberella with me and do a "Mary Poppins" impersonation lol :)
Hopefully I'll have gotten up early enough to make my rounds, if not I'll be back tomorrow :)

I love dragonflies and while out for a walk last saturday, we came upon a pond, with more dragonflies in one spot than I've seen in my life. All different kinds all beautiful. This is something I've (tried to) put together using photoshop, that was playing up, but manged ok in the end, from four of the many photos I took that day :)
