Four of a Kind (Damselfly Nymphs)

Just four photos tonight, taken a short while ago in the garden pond. The damselfly nymphs are currently the most active (or at least, most visible) of the pond dwellers, and there are so many of them that it is almost a case of point and shoot. Here are the four lucky nymphs.

    I have seen a snow warning for Great Britain, nymphs won't be active for a long time now :left:

    Darko, it's amazing how they survive over winter even in a frozen pond. We don't expect snow this far south at the moment.

    No snow here but wild east coast winds :smurf:

    The nymphs look very much out of this world :alien:

    Adele, yes it must be pretty exposed out on the east coast. So far it's not been too bad here, just a bit windy. Here's hoping the snow holds off for a while longer. :smurf:
