Waterside Wildlife.


A recent leisurely stroll along the towpath beside the River Wey Navigation on a warm sunny day provided the following wildlife encounters.

 Common Darter.

Brown Hawker.

At one spot I watched at least half a dozen Migrant Hawkers in flight over the water and then managed to locate one individual resting overhead.

Just a few butterfly species were seen including a single Small Copper, several Green-veined Whites plus a Comma and Red Admirals.


 Red Admiral.

  3. Beautiful! I love the dragonflies and the butterflies.

  4. Hello, the towpath looks like a great place to spot the wildlife. Awesome shots and captures of the dragonflies and butterflies. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  5. Hello Frank,
    because I can connect me only, perfect sharpness, pro-like photographs .. you can very well see the details ..
    greetings Frank

  6. No brown hawkers for me this year, plenty of migrant hawkers though, and common darters. They are the two dominant dragons round here

  7. A nice collection Frank. Getting rarer by the day now unfortunately.

  8. Such beauty in these dragonfly and butterfly images. We just did not have as many this Summer~
