Starting off with some Damselflies I saw while in Keswick .These are male & female Willow Emerald Damselflies.
This Dragonfly I believe is a Norfolk Hawker and seen at my local patch Thorpe Marshes.
Onto Moths now. Ive managed to ID half of the 30 plus species ive found, most were found in stair wells or near lights which were kept on during the night and attracted the Moths to settle nearby.

|Silver Y Moth|
|Common White Wave Moth|
Not particularly rare but I struggled to see one last summer on my travels so to get one this weekend just gone was great and to do it with my son George (5 yrs old) was special. I decided to stopped off at a nice Meadow in full flower on the way home from hes friends Birthday party.

Always enjoy watching these little creatures and explained what this would soon be doing as regards the process of it becoming a Butterfly .George was fascinated !
We also connected with 2x Skipper (butterfly species) .Small and possibly a Essex Skipper (still unsure)
Back to my work sightings ive had plenty of Comma ,Speckle wood, Red Admiral and Gatekeeper butterflies ...
