Covid-19 lockdown garden species project - Blue tailed damselfly

Garden watch week 12

Garden watch week 12

Still struggling on, now on 84 different garden animals for 84 consecutive days. Each of the pictures that follow have been taken before noon on the day. The day I can’t find something new to photograph is the day all this madness ends. I originally thought I could get around 30, then spring showed up and the macro lens came out. Now hitting 100 species doesn’t seem impossible but we’ll see what the weather brings.

84 days, 84 pictures.
