Small creatures in North Yorkshire

On our trip to West Tanfield and surrounding environs, we encountered plenty of interesting mini-beasts.  Here are ringlet, meadow brown and small skipper butterflies, hoverfly, honeybees covered in pollen, wasp and common soldier beetle, a male banded demoiselle and a female common blue damselfly.
