Arriving at the site a fast walk down to the meadow are, which is only very small but has loads of insect attracting wild plants/flowers that in turn attract the Dragonfly's , the main species here are the tiny Black Darters.
Unfortunately there are very few flowers open , appears recent rain has flattened most of them , along with loads of other photographers that have been here shooting and created paths through the plants.
I love shooting Back lit spiders :) the webs are superb
the legs are quite translucent on this orb weaver
A big hoverfly on my finger :) its come over quite dull and i think its going to rain so will have to hurry up and find some Dragons, which are noticeable by their absence!
another shot of it :)
I have eventualy found a pair of Black Darters , and a spider :)
this image is 5 frames focus stacked to get both spider and the dragons in focus .
