Experimenting with my new camera (Bob and Mike...it's all your fault ) And I did get it with Mrs PB's blessing, sort of!!
Starting with some black n yellow stripy things
Then one of my favourites, grey wagtail
Another game of odd one out
And then a couple of shots I wouldn't have got on my old camera... normally described as a blue streak...

First stripey thing is like the one I posted on Odds & sods thread ... save for the fact that your one's alive!
Second is Syrphus sp. likely a male cos his eyes are close together!

By the way, how did you know?
In reply to WendyBartter:
But where do you find that... I interwebbed that before I asked and it said right click image then go to properties...but I don't get properties if I right click image
edit... how odd... I can get the information if I look at the image on my phone, but not from the website on the PC
Have you edited the images you posted here PB? I can't get properties on pics that I've re-sized in my photo editor!
I can't get exif data from these images either ... you'll have to wait for TJ to reveal his secret!

Sneaky aren't I. I use Chrome and I've installed an app called EXIF viewer from the PLAY store. All I do is right click on the image and from the pop up menu you can access the app. However, I enlarged the image first otherwise it doesn't show all the details. This is what it looks like.
