    Wow. I haven't seen one of those. Think I'd run a mile if I did
    Great captures Rolf . Are they the type that glow in the dark

    No, don't think so, they are not very big, much smaller than a Damselfly, so not very frightening.

    Oh. They look big. Maybe I have seen them and not realized
    Certainly nice captures.
    I'll have to be looking out for them

    The equipment I use is a Canon 30D with Sigma 50-500mm lens. I also have a garden hide from which I take most of my pictures.

    I thought the same as you Beryl, I'd have run a mile too, an interesting little creature though and good shots too

    Was down at my friend's place on the Thames at Caversham (opposite Reading Rock site) and the garden was full of them, you hardly notice them, thought they were Crane flies to start off.
