Good Friday afternoon at Tophill

A quick tour of Tophill Low late-afternoon in search of damselflies. Only managed to find one free flying Large Red.

Below is a picture of some Large Red Damselfly exuvae.

Disappointingly few to be found despite the species being out for a least a week.

Several species of butterflies encountered including Red Admirals and this Small Copper.

Finally, I found the Cameraria ohridella (Horse Chestnut Leaf Minor) impossible to count in the evening sunshine. Little wonder the leaves don't stay green for long! A slight improvement on my efforts to photograph them last weekend!
