Nature's Jewels

Before Elizabeth returned to the UK, we completed a second butterfly survey for the STERF project, but this month saw us photographing more damsel flies than butterflies!

Their colours are truly jewel-like as the following photographs show.

So come on butterflies! The survey is about you not your colourful cousins! On the plus side, at least there wasn't much to complete on the speadsheet.....

(If you were wondering, being short on both time and knowledge I am NOT going to try to identify these!! C)

1 & 2 are female Demoiselles - possibly different species. 3&4 are male Beautiful Demoiselles. 5 is a darter, but I'd have to look up which species.
