I did say I wasn't going to do any more insect photography this year but with just one distant Hobby to show for a long walk around the Moss, I couldn't resist a peek at some of the pools?
Almost immediately, a male White-faced Darter in view! With no macro lens, all these images were taken with the 500mm lens - quite a versatile piece of kit!!
Always nice when resting amongst an attractive backdrop!
When compared to a 'stick'.!
Quite a bit of competition for ownership of the stick!! The Four-spotted Chaser led the Darter a merry dance!
Meanwhile, down in the gloopy mud and slime, Azure Damselflies were busy....
Mating and laying eggs :-)
I've got all the angles covered and with a talk coming up for the local RSPB group (Shirehall, Shrewsbury on Nov 21st) Some of these images may well make an appearance there?
