Male Scarce Chaser
Female Scarce Chaser
(Well, there's only a little bit of orange on some of the females now)
Banded Demoiselles were frolicking everywhere
Common Blue Damselflies
and a White-legged Damselfly
While butterflies included this Large Skipper
Painted Lady (a worn adult, from north Africa)
and Small Tortoiseshell
There were quite a few Harlequin Ladybirds getting busy, too...
Good to see this family still stands at a total of nine cygnets
Compared to the last couple of times I've been there this year, Scarce Chasers have now become harder to find. They're not orange anymore, and they weren't perching quite so prominently. Maybe they're busy with other things...
