Ruddy Darter on Great Willowherb.

I made another visit to Saxon Pond yesterday to attempt to identify a plant that had so far eluded me. I am now fairly certain that it is Thread-leaved Water-crowfoot .

The sunshine treated me to a wonderful display of darter dragonflies (15+), which this photo enabled me to identify as Ruddy Darters.Ruddy_darterI also saw Emperor dragonflies, Blue-tailed damselflies plus Small Tortoiseshell and Holly Blue butterflies.

Hoping for some sunshine on Thursday, so the rest of the group might see these amazing sights too.
