Interesting shots there especially the change from the Larva to the diving beetle!. Nature is Amazing.
Cheers

No fish = plenty of wildlife! Although having said that, we had quite a problem with a pair of Mallards that wanted to take over our garden pond this year. I don't think that there would have been much left if we hadn't been able to persuade them to move on, even though I felt a bit guilty doing it.

When I first saw the title of this thread I assumed it was either about Totterdown attendees or those who insist on standing at the end of 27 at FFD on the road under the approach.
