Life in the Garden

One of my favourite things to observe and photograph in the garden are the little critters that fly, crawl, and wriggle about and call the garden their home.  I have learned that it takes a quick eye and a lot of patience to capture them in action.  Here are some of the residents I have spotted so far.

Can you spot the 2 damselflies?
