I was still spotting darters during the beginning of December, but after four days of strong winds and torrential rain, I don't expect to see any more until the Spring

What a brilliant little creature this is with the transparent wings.
That delicate and interesting structure you have captured in the wings
is something extra ordinary. Your camera work is out of this world and has great impact…..WinkWinkWink

I saw one at the end of November at the Barnes Wetland Centre - poor little guy, bit of a loner, but obviously with good survival instincts! Nice shots.

A real belter Carol, the pov and detail is most impressive. It's been a strange year that is for sure, a few butterflies and dragonflies were reported in the UK a couple of weeks ago and several swallows were seen in Stonehouse, Glos the day before yesterday by some respected local birders!
