Hide and Seek.

Eric: We had been for another walk and were just relaxing in the long grass.

Flynn: Mum has to keep watching us or we sneak off in the long grass when she isn't looking and then she can't see us.

Somebody else must not have been able to see us either. This pretty blue Damselfly came and perched on the grass next to us. Damselflies are like Dragonflies but smaller, and when they perch on the grass they fold their wings back against their body, unlike Dragonflies who keep their wings outstretched.

That damselfly looks furry interesting! Thank you for the nosekissies and concats on my Gotcha Day. I hope to have some outside time too this weekend, but we're having what mom calls "migrane-weather".

There you are! We see you hiding! We would never have thought that two gingers could so easily blend in with the tall grass.. But you do! Hugs and kisses and thank you for the interesting info on the pretty blue buggie.

Great hide and seeking in the long grass, boys. That is quite interesting about the damselflies. We didn't know that.

Did you guys scare that damselfly away?? It sure is hard to see you two in all that grass!

That tall grass looks just like ours. We have lots of tall grass and it is fun to jump around in it. That damselfly is very pretty. Bet you didn't see it Eric and Flynn. Hope all of you have a super week end
