Went for a walk by the stream yesterday and saw lots of tortoiseshell butterflies, cabbage whites, a couple of species I haven’t identified and several beautiful blue damselflies with dark blue wings. Oh, and a fox. 😎
Went back today with the camera. It was a bit cloudier and windier than yesterday. No fox, no damselflies, but still lots of tortoiseshell, a female cabbage white and a small fly-like insect I’ve never seen before. I also saw two buzzards, but they were too distant to even attempt a shot.
After I posted the last pic on a forum, someone told me it’s a scorpionfly. Looked it up and it looks right. I am astonished though, that the available shots on the web are mostly of very poor quality, making my shot, with which I was disappointed due to poor depth of field, look quite good.
