There was much activity down by the canal this Fathers Day. This Damoiselle fly did not have much luck, but at least it kept nice and still while I was photographing it.
The dog had a great time, including the obligatory swim and a brief attempt to roll in Swan poo.

To add to the excitement of the day, the afternoon was spent helping to catch a swarm. It was not the most convenient as it was around a post.
With lots of smoke and patience, the swarm crawled and buzzed its way into the box.

It was entertaining taking a few of the pictures as the bees did not really want us there!
Hopefully they will settle happily into their new hive over the next few days though.
