Well barely as I arrived back and it was time to go again…I seem like a right gad about but, this one had been planned for some time.
The Dragonflies and Butterflies in June are amazing so I had a wonderful time with my macro:
Last time, I only managed one very distant shot of a Goldenring dragonfly and I was pleased to have the opportunity to capture several this time.
Butterflies were plentiful and I like the light showing through the wings of this Cleopatra, showing off that lovely orange colour. I was lucky enough to have a couple of firsts too one of which was my first Large Tortoiseshell.
A closer look at a Silver Washed Fritillary:
As always there were an amazing array of other insects and I liked this Long Horn Beetle (strangalia maculata):
Although it was very distant, I had my first glimpse of a Blue Rock Thrush:
I also had the experience of seeing yet another Ant Lion, this one is Nemoptera sinuata:
Of course, there was also plenty of walking, beaches and lovely food. I will leave you with this shot of Kastro and gather together some more scenery for my next post 🙂
