Dolphins to Damsels

This last week has been very hot but thankfully as I write my blog things have cooled down and it is much more pleasant to be out and about.During the very hot and humid weather I turned my attention to looking at dragonflies,damselflies and butterflies.It had been some time since I had visited Cumbria to look for dragons and damsels and it was a nice change and a different challenge for the camera.Good friend Paul Foster accompanied me on one of the trips and we both enjoyed looking for and photographing the various insects which were enjoying the very hot and sunny conditions.

It was quite a change from our previous trip out into Liverpool Bay looking at gannets and dolphins.I also had another trip north to look for the beautiful demoiselle damselfly.This is a spectacular damselfly that occurs on some of the streams in the Lake District.I visited a site where I had seen it in previous years and was pleased to find it still present in good numbers.I have shown above a selection of images of the dragonflies,damselflies and butterflies seen on my travels. I have also shown a few more images of the dolphins seen on the memorable trip on Discovery out from Liverpool.Thanks for looking in and I will be out and about again soon to bring you more images from my camera.
