Dragonflies everywhere

ON the Somerset Levels today, as expected, the darter and emperor dragonflies were prolific and fantastic.  I tried very hard to capture the emperors in flight but only with partial success.

At this time of year dragonflies are happy to perch on you...


Under some corrugated iron grass snakes and sloworms were happily coiled up - until I disturbed them!  A male adder was basking in its usual place too.

There are not many plants still in flower apart from the white Wild Angelica and Yellow and Purple loosestrifes, plus the occasional meadowsweet.
