VP - Skimmers

I've imposed a ban on insect photography this year (for the sake of my back) and with only one or two relapses to date, another one was looming today.

Quite safe? These were taken by poking the 500mm lens out from the Memorial Hide.....

Where a pair of Black-tailed Skimmers were locked in the wheel of love :-)

Enjoying every moment until a Common-blue Damselfly decided to join in!!

Oh dear, male on male action here.....

You can certainly see the look of surprise on the Skimmers face!!

I couldn't resist this Green-veined White either!

Despite a late start, butterflies are appearing thick and fast but I wont be labouring the point - unless we get a Clouded Yellow??!!
