Local Ponds

Had a stroll around the local quarry for a couple of hours hoping for some Dragonfly action, was a bit upset when I looked to find no water on the large ponds or where the large ponds should have been, only found one small one with water but no dragons at all, found a Ringlet¬†butterfly which was a little bit of compensation being first of the year and very fresh. Hoverflies were about but due to winds were not stopping for long, so wasn’t able to ID,¬†other action included Yellow Shell Moth along with Common Carpet Moth, no other butterflies only Ringlet.

Birds about were a few Common Whitethroat, Chiffchaff, Chaffinch, Kestrel, and Robin.

I have started using flash more now for insect shots, still in the experiment mode but here’s a couple of pictures to look over
