A recent visit to RSPB Conwy, a chaser I think
This dazzling emperor was catching the sun perfectly!
Without thinking about it, I set the shutter to 1/8000 sec, which was probably too fast for the low light level, but it was good to see how the new lens handled the scenario.

They do like the sun and heat before laying, so you never know, on the right day it could be teeming with them.

With he warmth, sun and little wind, dragons, hawkers and damsels were out and about.
The damsels were out and about, getting the heat from the stones.
