And still They come . . .

Another sunny day and though I was otherwise indisposed, a return trek to Kibblesworth was undertaken by 'Indiana' Steve, as on Tuesday he hadn't bothered to take his camera and missed out on capturing the Black-tailed Skimmer show in all its glory.
But he made up for it today with some cracking shots as once again the pair was seen mating (or was it a different pair?) and also got some superb macro shots of a four-spotted chaser. Enjoy . . . .

Black-tailed Skimmer (male)
Notoriously difficult to get a good photograph due to their habit of perching
on the ground, this image is as about as good as it gets considering
the distance involved.  
Black-tailed Skimmer (female)
When the background isn't so uniform even the brightly-coloured
female gets a bit lost in the surroundings

Four-Spotted Chaser at Kibblesworth
Superb macro shots of detail in close-up
