A good count of 40+ Four-spotted Chasers, certainly living up to their name today, very active with lots of mating, ovipositing and general chasing about.
A good count of damsels as well, with Common Blue and Azure well represented, lesser numbers of Blue-tailed and relatively few Large Reds.
Not many photographic opportunities (especially from the four-spots) which is just as well as I only had my Krappy Kodak with me, which doesn't have a macro or image-stabiliser and must be the world's slowest focuser, so often the target had flown while my lens was still trying to lock on.
Here's the only two semi-decent pictures I got :
|Common Blues in the mating wheel|
|Blue-tails in the mating wheel|
This time the female is of the infuscans form
Bad news is that my trusty old Panasonic is officially dead, tried it this morning but not a flicker, its only use now is either a doorstop or a paperweight. Only myself to blame, lesson learned (I hope)
Looking to get a Canon SX50 as a replacement, but when that will be is another matter . . . .
