In the past years I’ve came back empty-handed and disgusted from several “insect safaris” field trips in the surrounding countryside. As a result, since I no longer go to watch the insects, they come to visit me in my garden.
When I saw this magnificent “dragonfly” still asleep on a fern specimen on my fern wall, I couldn’t believe my eyes. A nice specimen of Anax imperator (female).
And also today a less impressive but cute creature on my rosa ‘Celina’.
