June Jaunt - Common Blue Damselfly
Finally managed to get out on the patch today, seems to have been forever, a few different illnesses through the family, sore shoulders and bad back are my excuses (that and the few times I have been out I have not had he energy after to write about it sorry). Anyway today's walk was always going to be about the bugs rather than the birds, as so often in summer months the birds are less my focus.

Today is mainly going to be a photo post, although it was a very enjoyable work, there was not much about (and nothing of real note) however it was a great day for me with the camera (although I missed the photo of a Blue Argus, my first on the patch, that I really wanted, I was too busy admiring it).

anyway here are the photos.
