The forecast was for bright sunshine today but although the sun did appear on a number of occasions it remained quite cloudy for most of the day. I decided after work to drive over to Reculver to once again see what dragonflies I could find and photograph. There appears to only be a handful of Common Blue damselflies on the wing now but Migrant Hawker numbers still remain quite good when the weather conditions are right. I have seen a few photos in the last few months of damselflies taken hiding behind stems with both of their eyes sticking out either side. It certainly looks quite spectacular and I have always been on the look out for this opportunity. I arrived at Reculver where it was mostly cloudy with occasional sun and set about trying to find a few dragonflies. I soon saw 3 Migrant Hawker flying around and a scan of the grasses revealed 7 Common Blue damselflies. I took a few shots as ever and moved on to see what I could find. As I scanned the grass I saw a single Common Blue damselfly moving slowly up a thin stem. Could this be my chance. I got on to my hands and knees and luckily got a good angle on the damselfly which gave the view I have been looking for. I spent the next 30 minutes on my belly taking a number of shots as it slowly moved up the stem and thankfully the sun made an appearance making for a few pleasing images. As it warmed up it flew off eventually leaving me with with a fantastic experience and another load of shots in the bag. I had not expected much tonight with quite a strong breeze and cloud but it certainly turned out to be a good and worthwhile visit.
