Still not much to report regarding birds. If it is happening it will be at the coast which we have not visited for a few weeks. It is, however, just past high season for insect life. I say that because in hot condition insects generally live fast and die young so with the continuing warm their season will be curtailed.
We decided to try to photograph a Hawker Dragonfly in flight. It is a tricky assignment; neither a long lens (not manoeuvrable enough) not a short one (needs a very close approach) is ideal.
Sitting, waiting, you don't know if you will even fire the shutter, but in the end I got some decent shots of this patrolling male Common Hawker.
