chest deep in the polluted nile river

Bubbles in the Nile

A bubble from the camara lens when switched on under waterl

This is the prompt for an underwater shot of the dragonfly it kept coming back to land on this piece of reed , but its sods law that when I got close enough it went to another landing place,

no decent shots of the red tailed skimmer dragonfly,
the blue damsels where much more obliging got to within 6" to take the next shots while I was up to my chest in the Nile river

Laying its eggs just below water line
