Spread your wings

As conscientious and knowledgeable readers of Imperfect and Tense, you're probably wondering if we saw any Odonata whilst on holiday.

Hell, yeah!

At Loch Garten:

Born to be wild: a recently-emerged Four-spotted Chaser.

On the trail of the lonesome pine: a White-faced Darter.

At Keltneyburn Nature Reserve:

Denim and leather: over-mature Large Red Damselfly.

Two out of three ain't bad: Large Red Damselflies (and friend).

At Logierait SSSI:

Blue for you: Azure Damselfly.

Once, twice, three times a lady damsel: Northern Damselflies.

We also managed to see, but not photograph, Common Blue Damsels and a possible Azure Hawker (I know!).

You've certainly got an eye for nature. Thanks for sharing that knowledge, appreciate that. I see what you meant about the music! There is a bit of all sots in there: Quo, Queen, Meatloaf and even Saxon! Agh well nothing that a bit of 'Brighton Rock' wouldn't cure! Regards, Mark.
