Perwetty flutterby Sunsetter, I saw one in the garden a couple of weeks ago, just sat on the Buddleia, stupidly I just stood there and watched it for about 5 minutes before I thought of getting my camera, as soon as I got back out there the little bugger had fluttered on :bad:

LOL I do that but then I kick myself for not having just done it in the first place and the worst part is I never seem to learn my lesson !

Seen down by the river recently

That is one of the most superb photos of a dragonfly I have seen for a long time. The lighting and clarity are really brilliant, how well it shows the beautiful sheen on these lovely creatures. Lots of congratulations to you sunsetter.

Buff-Tip caterpillar. Sorry about the focus, they were moving plus no tripod.

Open to correction but I belive this is a male Ruddy Darter dragonfly.

Rested beside the garden pond while I was having a cuppa in the sunshine today

Common Blue butterfly I took a couple of months ago (one of my favourite pics so far) and a beauty of a spider in the garden.
