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
