I didn’t go out with the intention of snapping insects but about a mile into our walk I came across dozens and dozens of Dragonflies. I had a 135mm lens on the camera and a teleconverter in my pocket.
I’m going to struggle with identification so any suggestions are welcome. This is a moth. It is a bit blurry as it was sitting there and trembling with a very high frequency shiver. I’ve never seen them do that before. I think it may be a Pine Hawk Moth but have my doubts.
I have never seen so many in one place. I’ll get out in the morning with the macro gear and try and find them before they start flitting and darting about. I ought to get a copy of a big Dragonfly book. I’ve got the one you recommended written down Trevor. I couldn’t get their wings to show but most carried the black oblong on the leading edge.
They will all enlarge with a click as they are just cropped square.
