I keep thinking I’ve seen the last dragonfly of the year, perhaps this ruddy darter (I think) is it?
Had a short walk by Jaw Reservoir, yesterday. Quite a few butterflies about. These posed. A lot of ringlets, a few whites and a red admiral did not oblige.
A nice walk around Ardinning Wildlife reserve on Sunday morn, very quiet. Cuckoos, curlews & other singing & calling.
Images: Ardinning Loch, caterpillar, wood anemone, bluebells, dandelion & a green veined white.
Common Blue Damselfly & Common Darter at Ardinning yesterday. Also saw very large dark blue dragonfly.
Blue-tailed Damselfly, Forth and Clyde Canal
Small White or Green Veined White? Seems it is hard to tell from this angle.
Four-spotted Chaser at Ardinning on Friday
Blue Damselfly in Victoria Park this evening.
A colleague found this one at school today. Google Reverse image search gives me Poplar Hawk-moth.
Speckled Wood Saw one of these this afternoon in Christine & Michael’s garden. I scared it off before I could get a photo. Lovely, the first I’ve seen although they seem to be common.
