At the pond in June

These are my first photos at the pond in June.  The pheasant has a small brood of chicks but too small to find in the long grass where she’s keeping them safe from predators.  Also here, a juvenile long-tailed tit, a cinnabar moth, small tortoiseshells, a meadow brown and a small heath.

On the pond are a dancing troupe of azure damselflies, broad-bodied chaser, large red damselfly and the first of five emperor dragonflies I’ve seen so far this year.

For more dragonflies and damselflies, go to ‘At the pond in May’
