......... where I'm snapping various insects without knowing what most of them are! Hope someone can enlighten me:
I think this is a common blue damselfly
Speckled wood butterfly?
Sort of like the common blue damselfly, only it's white
I've not seen this before - it appeared to be hatching!
Any help gratefully received.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

In reply to Whistling Joe:
Lovely photos Clare, and nice to see the nymph ,mid-phase of growth to adulthood.
The whiteish damsel could be the female blue, which are considerably paler than the males.
The fly, most likely greenbottle.
