dragonflies and butterflies

as yesterday still fucking warm,all the birds are hiding so more dragonflies.
if photographing swifts is hard then dragonflies 'in flight' is even harder,which is why my photos of them are crap.

Nothing crap about these shots...stunning. The butterfly with Skipper?? is a Gatekeeper.

Stunners in there Darrell, best ( I think ) are the egg laying Emporer and the bottom flight shot. Tremendous.

Darrell, have needed to be even handed in public - I noted your apology, for which thanks. Tricky politics.
