Common Darter dragonfly
Ardinning Thursday Afternoon
Amethyst Deceiver possibly?
Quite a lot of rain recently, but we had a dry hour or so, some sun a a fairly strong breeze.
A few blue damselflies and smallish red dragonflies along the path. Sheltered by the bracken which is starting to droop, lots of flowers go to seed. Scabious coming up strongly.
A few peacock butterflies on the knapweed, a small copper on the path, the odd painted lady and white but fewer than recently.
I love seeing wood pigeons flighting in the wind. The Black Linn was full of rain water.
Day 5 in @macgenie‘s photo challenge Determination. This is what the painted ladies need to migrate from North Africa to Scotland across multiple generations. Seems to be a big year for butterflies here painted ladies in particular.
