Visit to Kynance

I took this Dragonfly at Kynance cove and looking at the pale stripe on top of the thorax,
I think it's a Keeled Skimmer, a first for us if I'm right. Sue


















This Burnet Has recently emerged and it's
wings have not yet opened.









We took this on the windows of St. Allen Church
and think it's a Small Pheonix.







I know nothing about Toads but surely his nose shouldn't look like that. I think something
has bitten the end off and exposed the nasal cavity. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Sue

  9. Another superb collection guys...well done.

    Yes, Keeled Skimmer..over mature female.

    I've never seen a Silver-washed Frit with any pale outer fringe markings so I suspect you may have captured something else?

  10. Great variety of butterflies and moths. We don't have a great many different varieties here in Interior Alaska, so it's a treat to get to see so many different ones.

  11. Thanks everyone, I was really pleased to get a Keeled Skimmer, and some of the Butterflies & Moths are mine as well. As Early Birder rightly pointed out I have wrongly named the Fritillary (should have double checked it), rushing to get things edited and on the blog. I think it is probably a Pearl-Bordered Fritillary, and have corrected it. SUE

  12. Great set of images and the Dragonfly is a Keeled Skimmer it's a female or immature male. I have just bought the Collins complete British insect Book by Michael Chinery ideal for identifying insects £16.99 Well worth the money.
