Had the pleasure of spending about 3-4 hours at Feckenham Wylde Moor yesterday at the hottest part of the day mostly chasing/watching the Dragonflies.To get there you have to walk around and through the wet Marshy fields full of all kinds of flowers with Butterflies starting to show.
Noticed a couple of Spotted Orchids and luckily they were near a path and I could lie down to get the feeling of JUST BEING THERE.........better than doing a late Friday shift !!!

Even an insect popped in to see what I was up to.
