After work, I decided to visit the College Grounds, not somewhere I enjoy going in the afternoon normally, as it's full of people, but it does have some small ponds where the Damsels and Dragonflies can be seen, so I spent an hour photographing what I could find, until the clouds rolled in and the Odenata melted away and disappeared.
When I arrived, in bright sunshine, this GREEN WOODPECKER was feeding on the lawn.
