    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.              

    Spotted a couple of links on my Flickr page from here, so I thought I'd share a few of my recent shots.   flight preparation... by markhortonphotography, on Flickr   Cockchafer (melolontha melo

    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 !

    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.

    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

    This isn't a photo of insects, but how much work they do when we're not looking....You only ever see this when the sun is at a very specific angle, and then it's amazing. At any other time of the day you can't even see it as you are walking though it.
