A Winding Way Through the Reserve

Saturday, May 27th 2023

Friday was warm and sunny.  Flowers and some bugs and beasties were enjoying the warmth. 

The 'damsels' were on the wing, some even sitting still for a reasonable photograph!

This is a Blue Tailed Damselfly, so named after its blue mark at the lower end of its abdomen.  Of course the background is just perfect!

Butterflies were less co-operative and this Speckled Wood did not open its wings fully.  And of course it sat with a beautiful background!

The middle moor, which just a couple of weeks ago was still short green grass, is now dotted with buttercups, Red Clover, Dandelions, Ribwort Plantain and many grasses. 

Ragged Robin had tightly closed buds one day and open the next.  This one was being used as an anchor by a spider, which as usual is nowhere to be seen.
