  1. absolutely. It went through like a hot knife through butter.
  2. Milling some more chestnut for posts.
  3. Dragonflies and damselflies are similar, both belonging to the Odonata subspecies of insects. More than 5,000 species of these insects exist, with dragonflies being more common than damselflies, according to Insect Identification.
  4. Damselflies have wings that are both the same size and shape, which taper where they attach to the body. Dragonflies, however, have different shaped fore and hind wings. Their hind wings are much broader and don't taper so much where they attach to the body, giving them more of a plane look.
  5. I use Aspen 2 or the Husky equivalent. It works well on all of my small engines. Aspen 2 seems to be a very good mix and all saws seem to like using it. don't use anything else with the small engines these days its miles better than 2 stroke mixes on all fronts IMHO.
  6. Here's a few from later in summer. Broad bodied chaser is probably my favourite looking dragonfly.
  7. Always been impressed by dragonflies, they are impressive IMHO. I thought I would share some of the shots I got last summer down at our pond.
  8. and not to be forgotten, the old mallards.
  9. This little robin was pretty content while I watched him in the woods. Kept posing for me.
  10. Egyptian geese have taken a liking to our pond.
  11. Got cold again here after a pretty warm day. Lots of water drinking had to be done during the day...
  12. Yep great boots for landscaping work. Once worn in, very comfortable with a decent pair of boot socks.
  13. Superb Job Gary. I would love to come and learn that technique one day or many days. Got miles of hedging to sort out. [emoji106]
  14. There are many a hedge layer on here who have hundreds of years more experience than I though.
