Well, you could have a point there Harriet but, really all they had to do was say, Hey! leave my dragonflies alone and I would have left peacefully.

Thank you for the comments on the DF.

Agreed with the Sheriff looking back at you lol, you can get into trouble over here for doing that, you know as you must obviously be a terrorist

There was a photographer who got arrested a few months back for being "too tall" apparently it "intimidated" the female police officer... I swear this country is falling apart...

Unbelievable! What did they do... throw him in jail until he promised to shrink to a smaller size? whats the world coming to...

Thank you all, for all the kind comments. I really appreciate them.

I think the Sheriff's office is use to my photographing them by now. I've been doing it for several years now. I think they kinda miss me when I'm not home.

They eventually let him go and had to apologise, but it's a recurring theme for photographers in the UK now, the anti-terrorism laws basically give the police free reign to basically question/search anyone with a camera. It has spawned the following website, recommended viewing for any photographer in the UK, especially if you are taking photo's in London.
