Burnets & Skippers

After a claustrophobic journey home on the tube last night I needed some wide-open green space. I had a look in Sunny Hill Park in North London to see if Purple Hairstreaks were flying yet and found good numbers of Small and Essex Skippers on the wing. Best though, was a Southern Hawker (Aeshna cyanea), my first of the year and first record in the park. Later, towards sunset, I returned to capture some roosting insects silhouetted against the setting sun.
