The Helleborines aren't going to be around for much longer this year, so took the oportunity to snap at these, nearly over, Broad-leaved Helleborines near the car park.
Autumn Lady's Tresses - out in the windest part of the reserve, I could see the point of tripods, etc, so just a wee record shot.
This Brown Argus seemed really fresh - though it wouldn't have had any trouble drying its wings in today gale!
A Robber Fly (Asilus crabroniformis). A sizable beastie nearly 3cms long. It harried a flew of the butterflies and bits - seemed like the skua of the dipteran world
And finally, A Wasp Spider. I still haven't really got the the image I want for these things - will just have to keep trying.
And finally, news came through - nuffin seen on the pelagic. Good for us, not so good for those who made all the effort (and expense) and went on the trip.
