Bluebells and a Dragonfly by Jonah (aged 7)

An excellent drawing by Jonah, who has noticed that the flowers of native bluebells grow on only one side of the stem; there are seedlings growing next to the parent plant.

Jonah has, quite correctly, recorded that its abdomen is longer than its hind wing.
