The Blues and Streaks

August 26, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

 The transformation from a bag of fluid hanging on a grass stem twig or leaf, is a mind blowing concept of evolution, to say the least.

 Especially when you have the privilege, as that is what it is, to watch the emergence from this pupal stage of an insect into some of the most awe inspiring colourful and delicate insects you see on the wing as it fly's around, searching for its first feed and a mate to ensure the species continues.

Sadly with the recent weatherhas precluded the search for one or two other streaks around the country, oh! and the covid 19 problem there has been little opportunity to go and search for them.

So onto the Blues.

Search and you shall find!! 

Well some days you do and some you don't,

The do not's far out weigh the do's but you keep searching

The list of wants is declining a bit slow but it can be achieved eventually.

Camberwll Beauty and Duke of Burgandy ? next year perhaps.
