Dragonflies were everywhere

Jez’s Fan of #60…..Dragonflies

As you may recall, on the weekend we had a picnic by the Clarence River. While relaxing in the shade on a rather warm March day, dragonflies seemed to be flitting about everywhere, whether near the water or right beside us on the grass.

Ready for a bit of Dragonfly action?

So many of the blue coloured dragonflies

Butterflies are all around Durranbah

Jez’s Fan of…..#59

I am a fan of Butterflies but who isn’t?
There has been many many butterflies around my garden for quite a while. The Lemon Migrants were here in numbers for almost eight weeks and even now there are a few still here. There are some I haven’t managed to get a photo of in the past few weeks, little Line Blues, a white and black one who is too fast, perhaps a Yellow Albatross and other small butterflies who don’t sit for long.

Here is the butterflies I have managed to photograph. I hope you enjoy the butterflies of Durranbah.
