With another evening of cloudy skies and gale force winds, this has at least let me look through the hundreds of photos that I have yet to look at. Like the Purple Emperor is to the butterfly world, this is the feeling I get when I see a Golden ringed Dragonfly for the first time every year. To see this large black and yellow dragonfly cruising up and down the streams in the New Forest was a pleasure and even better when a few decided to perch up and allow the camera to go into a frenzy. Although I have posted a few shots a few weeks ago, I can't resist a few more of this stunning dragonfly which is quite scarce believe it or not in Kent with only a few sites that it can be seen at. Maybe I will get another chance this year with some Kent ones, but if not, I was able to grab a few pleasing images of this beauty.
