Dragons

I have always had an interest in wildlife more so with birds and birding, as you may have gathered, and with a little knowledge of other things.

Over the last couple of years and especially this year, 2010, I have found myself being drawn into the world of the Dragonfly, now whether this is down to the photography side taking me into this world or just the splendor of these wonderful creatures I don’t know, but like the Butterflies I plan to share these new travels on this separate page  mainly to give it the space it deserves and I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I do.
