Birds, flowers and dragonflies

Wild carrot flowers, 9 August 2015

On 9 August 2015, again to the botanical garden. Where in the part of the garden which is a reconstruction of its early seventeenth century past, these flowers grow: wild carrot.

Before we had arrived there, two young herring gulls on a street near a canal. Then, two collared doves. And a great crested grebe couple swimming and diving in the canal.

Small red-eyed damselflies flying just over the garden pond, sometimes resting on water-lily leaves. Males and females in tandem; in two cases, on water plants; females with the lower parts of their bodies underwater, depositing eggs on the plants.

Then, the part of the garden near the exit, with the wild carrot flowers.
