There are some sizeable fish in the ditches here. My attention was diverted from an ovipositing Brown Hawker by one of them leaping just outside of my field of view. Nearby, I spotted this one, so motionless that at first I thought it was a dead leaf. It would be a juvenile, being only about 8-10cm long.
