Damselflies are fun to photograph and like dragonflies, if startled they will often fly back to the same perch. Once you begin to understand their behaviour, insect and other nature photography can be much more rewarding. These shots were taken earlier last month. We are having an extremely hot dry summer and it seems to be having an impact on wildlife. Insect and bird activity has slowed in the last while. There are still plenty of subjects to photograph, it just takes a bit longer to find them.
