Warming Up

Warming Up - The British Wildlife Photography Awards 2009 to 2014
Female Damoiselle (Calopteryx splendens) on a Teasel Leaf by the bank of the River Tas, Caistor St Edmund, Norfolk, England. It was early morning and at this time Damoiselles are too cold to fly and often covered in dew. This image shows the Damoiselle hauling itself up onto the leaf with the last dew drops clinging to the hairs on its thorax. It will soon be warm enough to fly.
