Another Hot Day.

It was another hot,early summer day and a walk through the fields to Clamerkin pond was a real pleasure with Marbled White and Meadow Brown butterflies flying over the long meadow grass.The hedgerows are still home to several species of damselfly and  darters with the occasional dragonfly in hunting mode.
At the pond Ruddy Darters are emerging together with Emerald Damselflies.Of the larger dragonflies it seems to be only the male Emperor patrolling the water
