|This damselfly is a complete mystery. The smallest example of this family that I've ever seen.|
All of these images were taken, in September 2017, whilst we were enjoying our Kefalonian holiday. Very happy days!

Sunshine (memories) on a rainy day
I don't know when I'll next get out, such is the influence that current, unsettled, and very variable weather, conditions are having on the local fisheries. Cold does nothing to assist arthritis, my hands less able to do simple things, than during warmer weather. To be perfectly honest I no longer enjoy pushing myself, in inclement weather, when it is a problem to do the things which I used to take for granted. Let's get this right, I'm certainly not incapable of using my hands, when it's cold, but I do struggle with my grip, which can be a problem when unhooking pike and/or packing my kit away. If I don't enjoy it, then why do it? Rain is falling, driven on by 40 mph southerly gales, and I find myself looking at old photos; reliving moments when the sun shone brightly from a Mediterranean sky. These images will mean very little to others, yet they make me smile, feel warm, and recall memories of great times in fantastic company - a glass of Mythos close to hand.
