So, the other day I showed you a female "common" blue, now today I have something even less flattering.
My first damselfly shot of the year, a female common (again) blue damselfly, drab variant. Sometimes the females are green, sometimes they are drab, and this was the drab form.
Lots of bees about today on the dog roses, including a thumping great queen tree bumble. Butterfly wise we seem to be in that intermediate time, not many seen today apart from common and holly blue, and a brimstone. Orange tips are over it would appear, sadly. They are such a favourite species of mine, despite being pains in the behind to photograph.
Been warm today, swifts and swallows in the air. Lots of baby bunnies too, which is why I've seen Mr Fox twice in the last couple of days on campus.
