11/07/2018 Trying to catch up......
Maximum temperature today 26C, minimum 15C. Dry; 12 km/h North Easterly winds with up to 31 km/h gusts. Dry.
Photos from our week away other than the Little Owl (Athene noctua). I was sitting at the computer last night when I heard a suspicious noise, I even had time to change the lens on my camera before I went outside. The light was not great as the sun was setting behind the owl, but it made my week for me. 😃😉😊
Little Owl (Athene noctua)...
I have tried my best with the identification of the following, if I am wrong please let me know.
Azure damselfly (Coenagrion puella).
Water striders and azur damselfly.
Banded demoiselle (Calopteryx splendens) damselfly.
Flower longhorn beetle (Stictoleptura cordigera). Is that a dragonfly up in the corner?
Dragonfly - Large Pincertail - (Onychogomphus uncatus)....
Marbled White Butterfly (Melanargia galathea).
I think this is a Mayfly, but that is far as I can get with the identification here!
An orb web spider maybe!
