On slightly warmer days over the last couple of weeks, I have managed to complete a few bug hunts. I am hoping for better conditions soon, so that I can be out and about exploring both new and familiar locations. The gallery shows some of my favourites from the sessions so far.
It’s July already and days to be out photographing insects have been few and disappointingly cold! However, with the warmer weather, damselflies and dragonflies are on the wing and butterflies are in evidence. I took the following photographs on a couple of afternoon outings the end of June and early July. One of the pre-requisites this year was to obtain a pair of wellies! This allowed me to venture further into the edge of ponds, giving myself a bit more of a chance to catch the flighty critters. In retrospect, maybe a set of waders would have been a better idea!
