Paxton Pits - Nightingale, Scarce Chaser and Diving Terns
Paxton Pits was alive with damselflies and dragonflies yesterday morning. A Nightingale stayed long enough in a thorn bush to capture it with food for its young. This is my first photo of a Scarce Chaser - a common dragonfly species at Paxton pits but, like the Nightingale, not common elsewhere. The Common Terns were dipping into the water picking up dragonflies . I was fascinated by their reflections as well as the poses.
