The Silver Studded Blue season has not been a good one for me. My favourite site is swarming with hundreds of Mosquitoes this year and I had to abandon it and explore other new sites as I just had enough of them. Midges in Scotland are childs play compared to these!

It was quite apt that one of the buggers landed as I took this shot. Not the sharpest but at 600 pixels I can just about get away with it. Camera shake was induced mostly by me swatting the 50 or so mozzies that were feasting on me at the time!!
