Dragons and butters

Back to my usual haunts this lunchtime.

I may as well change the title of this blog to 'Common Darter portraits' for the duration of August, September and probably October. I can't help it if they're very photogenic and cooperative.

Will I ever get the definitive Common Darter shot? Don't think so.



Common Darter



Painted Lady - the first I've seen for a while. Numbers of butterflies are still well down, after all the rain

Migrant Hawker

Small Red-eyed Damselfly. Again, lots of these on the swimming pool today

Lots of Verbena in the memorial garden, though not nearly enough insects on it
