Re: Communal dragonfly and butterfly thread

No spiders here Margaret but I hope you don't mind caterpillars. Here is another shot of a Swallowtail butterfly at Strumpshaw Fen in June, along with a Swallowtail caterpillar which I took last year. The caterpillar is unusual in that it was one of several which were feeding on Fennel plants in the garden outside the reception building. The eggs are usually laid on Milk Parsley, which is only found in a few places these days.

E-M1 and 75-300 II.
