August in the woods: logs and bugs

Thankfully it's been much sunnier this summer than last year, and there have been some good opportunities to photograph insects in the wayleave. I was particularly pleased with this shot of a male Souther Hawker dragonfly:

I got some more of another type of dragonfly too, but not sure what type it is:

Butterflies are also back in reasonable numbers, such as this Meadow Brown:

and this White Admiral (which was near our camp, rather than in the wayleave):

We've made use of the dry weather to finish moving logs back from further parts of the woods to near the camp:

We also squeezed a few chunky holly logs into the car to fill up the last little space in the firewood store at home:

Finally, here's a few views of sunshine in the woods, which was quite rare last year!

We've also have a few camping weekends, photos to come shortly from the most recent one...
