Swallowtail at Hickling

Swallowtail butterfly. A Norfolk treasure

15th June 2017.  Lovely walk at Hickling Broad this morning. Only a couple of sightings of our beautiful swallowtail butterfly, unlike ten days ago when they were all along the Weavers Way.  I spotted this one in dappled shade nectaring on bramble and thought it made a nice shot.

Broadland icon, what’s not to like?

There was a good number of Norfolk Hawker dragonflies on the wing but they would not settle.  However I stopped at East Ruston Common on the way home and got the image of the one below.

Off to Cumbria for the weekend, hopefully some new sightings to image.
