Last year I went on a damselfly hunt at Pauatahanui and I found several bright blue damselflies. I knew they came in different colours but I was surprised to see two different colours on the same trip in Wairarapa.

When I was a child my grandmother used to make floral arrangements with artificial flowers. They were all the rage at the time! She used to have me collecting up the small pinecones from the fir trees so she could use them in the arrangements. These tiny pinecones reminded me of those days past.

I can’t help myself when it comes to reflections, as soon as I see something remotely like a reflection I just have to photograph it. With a little bit of magic they turn out like this one. The red is a reflection of some bright flowers on the edge of the pond.

I didn’t have my tripod with me on this outing and I was surprised to be able to achieve these slow exposures hand held with my shakey hands.
