Small Speckled Wood: 12th August 2019

We walked from Oulton Village (north Lowestoft) via Flixton Marshes, Somerleyton, Ashby and Lound to Hopton. So many butterflies, so many great shots, it was a hard decision which ones to use.

    Lovely images. Does that Painted Lady not know just how her colours clash with that knapweed? πŸ˜‰

  4. Nice captures of the dragonflies – their slender bodies are hard to photograph nicely!

    Lovely shots, and fun captions too. Interesting that at least in this sense, dragons and damsels are on such even footing. πŸ™‚

    Wonderful photos Crispina. Seems your trek was well worth it.
    One Summer I turned and spotted a Dragonfly doing casual but repeated passes outside my balcony window. It looked like a giant I swear! Maybe 12″ in length. My brave departed Pyewackette watched intently, while I closed the screen! It decidedly got bored and left.
