Went for a lunchtime walk yesterday, warm and humid, ideal weather for the Butterflies and Dragonflies to start appearing. Lots of Speckled Woods appearing in the woodland around the reservoir and my first Four Spotted Chaser of the year, a first at this location too.
The grasses in the meadow are almost chest height and I must have spent about 20 minutes stalking the Dragonfly through the jungle, never taking my eyes off it as it flitted about so I didn't lose it in the long grass. Really a hayfever sufferers worst nightmare as I was covered in seeds and pollen when I stepped out onto the path again!
All taken with the K5IIs + DA*300mm and 36mm Extension tube, manual focused.

Feeling Ian's buzz, I went out looking for butterflies today as well. Here are a couple. Both taken with the K-5 IIs and the DA*300.

Love the second shot of the Fritillary. Not seen any here since last year but I'll keep looking as I found a beutiful Dark Green Fritillary last year.

The Black Tailed Skimmers (Dragonflies) are emerging now and I managed a couple of shots yesterday, so will go back this morning to the same spot and see if I can get some more for the collection.
