Lovely shot Brian - how fantastic seeing a Ruddy Darter, I dont see many of these.

If its not raining tomorrow, Im off to find some at Thursley and hopefully see the beautifull little Black Darters. I will be flippin annoyed (a) if its raining, and (b) if I dont get to see them and photograph them - and get decent pics lol.
