As I walk with the boys from the Pooch Walk I am immensely grateful for the comforting presence of what now seems to be thousands of dragonflies, all different colours and sizes, that accompany us on our journey. Indeed, in some places the skyline is so rich with winged, fairy-like bodies that I feel as if we could be on the set of a Labrynth-esque movie.

Notwithstanding the undoubted beauty of the aerial spectacle that is regularly unfolding before us I can’t help but remember our pre-dragonfly roles earlier in the year as moving pin cushions. Now the mozzies know what it’s like.

Thanks Mother Nature…ain’t karma a bi#ch.
