A quick trip down to Risley Moss nature reserve near Warrington , the black darters should be showing well .
A Beautiful tiny Black Darter Dragonfly , they are only about 1 - 1.25 inch in size.
There are loads of these Emerald Damselflies perching on the grass stems .
A female Scorpion Fly , great looking creatures :D
Another black Darter :) its a hard going , not that many around and its a bit breezy which makes the stems more too much!
One of the large Hoverfly species that i always see here .
Mollster is waiting patiently :)
Resting bee :)
A longhorn beetle , very common this time of year
