River Don, Jarrow
Just along the road from South Shields the River Don flows into the River Tyne, and opposite St. Paul’s Church in Jarrow there is a small pond formed from rain water that is full of life in the summer months, tadpoles, toads, frogs, insects, strange worms, and these bright blue dragonflies.
Trouble is, they don’t want to stay still enough to be photographed! I was lucky with this one.
