The last couple of days have been entertainingly chaotic. I woke yesterday to see that over a hundred of you had taken the time to look in on my last post. The comments were all welcoming and kind so thank you one and all. Some of the hits may have been duplicated, there is bound to be the odd slow reader out there, still it has inspired me to produce yet another jumble of a blog for you to fight to make any sense of. If you succeed then please illuminate the author. My life is and always will be a hotchpotch of highs and lows.
Yesterday morning was rain free so off we set for a wander along the Tees. I left later than usual as it seemed a day for butterflies. I walked and I sat and I sat and I walked, saw a Tortoiseshell but failed to get a picture. I returned home and look what was sunning itself on the van window.
After lunch I had just settled down for a nap when a friend popped round and suggested a walk, off we went to South Park.
A wonderful bowls pavilion. That was South Park, time to head into town for a haircut. She left the dogs and me in a pub to wait for her…………..fatal……they take their time do ladies hairdressers and the beer took it’s toll on me. It looked a very nisch haircut and it wash worsh the wait……HIC!
This morning it was back to the jungle for a wander down the Tees.
If it flies like a butterfly, is beautifully coloured and looks like a Dragonfly then it has to be…………
A male Banded Demoiselle…….so neither a butterfly or a dragonfly but a damselfly. A real beauty and a smashing start to Friday the thirteenth. I was not going to better a find like this so set off home for breakfast. Fungi are early this year so here is yet another ‘I’M NOT SURE’.
It’s a Bonnet cap and I’m going to guess the Yellow-white Bonnet Cap.
All photographs should enlarge with a click. I’m away to Scotland tomorrow so have a great weekend and I’ll be back soon.
