    They are a real oasis right in the middle of Copenhagen city. How the wildlife gets there is anybodies guess, but presumably some of it has been there since before they became isolated by traffic or other metropolitain development?

    Male and female ruddy darters (frank?)?
    This ones wings were coverd in some kind of slime so as it could not flap or open them, perhaps it had been in a near escape with a fish or something? I tried to wash the slime off with a little water and gave it somethingto drinkfor which it appeared very greatful...

    Thanks for the comment :) Arkagjel. It was a little bit of a cheat, The heads are reasonably large, and ti was a slight crop on a 3x magnification lens, on insects that couldnt fly, the first had the wing problems and the second was too young having recently emerged, so they were not as tricky as they otherwise might have been.
