Two dragonflies spotted over the last couple of days. On Thursday I'd seen a dragonfly around my garden pond and today it was there again - just as I got the camera up it flew off so not even in focus properly.
I think it's probably a darter but an ID would be very welcome.
Then walking with my grandson and the dog on Esher Common (around Black Pond) on Friday, J spotted this - which I'm sure is a Black-tailed Skimmer. Needless to say, I didn't have the 400 lens so this was taken with a Canon 70-300 IS lens - but not too bad for that!
Then, as we were walking away from the pond, a deer came leaping across ahead of us - I'm sure this must be a Sika deer; it was the right size but I need to research this before I can be sure. In all the time I've been walking here, I've never seen one before - so very pleased with that spot!
