What a sight! A thing of beauty.

I took this photo today at the wild life garden. My 3yr old son Danny was amazed at this dancing fairy like creature as it laid its eggs on the edges of the Wivenhoe wild life pond.

As I was taking this photo my mind wondered back to the first time I met Johnny, (February 2012) we were the first two on sight and began hacking back the twisted stumps. Thank you for your inspiration Johnny...

And thank you to everyone who has been involved in the creation of this special place and made it possible for my son to enjoy this moment with his dad.
