It was a perfect evening tonight , warm and clear. At 8 pm a walk through the meadow to the lake edge was perfect. There were skylarks singing , rabbits running , butterflies and insects busy everywhere .
This meadow area is alive with damselflies and dragonflies flitting through the tall grasses.
At the lakeside I tracked a fantastic dragonfly which I had also seen in the grasses . It is a female ruddy darter . Very beautiful.
I enjoy spending time at the edge of the lake. There is so much going on amongst the tall vegetation along the banks.
The colours of flowers have moved into pinks and purples.
The meadow on the walk back looked magical in the evening.
A super summer walk .
