Neves Female Emperor Dragonfly Laying Eggs

Emperor Dragonfly Egg Laying by Andre Neves

15 Members of the Nature Group visited Strumpshaw Fen on Monday hoping for lots of Swallowtail butterflies to photograph. Unfortunately, like other butterfly species, the Swallowtail numbers are very low this year though some of our group did manage a brief sighting and a few photographs of one in the meadow. The Dragonflies made up for the absence of butterflies and the Norfolk Hawker, Scarce and Four-spot Chasers, and numerous Damselflies kept us well entertained.
