Over the past couple of weeks I've had a few trips to the local reservoir looking for butterflies and dragonflies that use the area for feeding. With the Fleabane in full bloom a large number of insects nectar on this flower and the dragonflies hunt those smaller insects.
Several Clouded Yellow have been seen during this time and Small Copper have also been very evident. Some of the larger butterflies have also been taking advantage of the abundant Blackberries ripening on the Bramble bushes.
