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 🙂

It sounds like you had a lovely time. You have captured some great macro shots.
Always nice to see the Greek islands in pictures and very glad to see that your butterfly photos are again first class.
