Hey Neil man I was just having a bit of fun I hope you would never think that I had anything but the greatest of respect for you and all my friends on this site.  Of course I took nothing personally I know that you are my friend and was only having fun too. So no offence meant or taken. You are and always will be THE ONE .

No I donít think so from what I have seen Dragonflies never close their wings back like these do. They also have two sets of wings that seem to rotate separately when they hover. I never seen this action in a Damselfly but I am no expert.

Nice leaf and i particulary like the way how you managed to catch the suns rays reflecting off its surface. Wicked man.

You must have been well anoyed when that stupid fly landed on the leaf as you were taking your shot.

Ps
next time  take some fly spray with you:)

?? - Without (happy or vigorous?) effort God does not reside in man ??????

I can only read Latin with great effort having never taken a course in Latin and never having read a Latin Grammer.

My dear sir, is this correct??
