After the rain

After the rain
Flagstones shining with rain

Meadow Brown
Gatekeeper hiding in the flowerbed (this one had a crinkled hindwing - presumably something happened while it was metamorphosing)

The ladybirds I've seen this year have mostly been native Seven-spots!

Common Darter
This Common Darter hadn't long emerged when it was grounded by the shower
