Heath Fritillary and dragonflies in East Cornwall

The image above is looking towards Luckett Woods, the CWT reserve which supports a colony of Heath Fritillary's.  We saw around 30 today.  It was hot and the butterflies were very active, so the only decent shot I took was this male below.  

Several Golden-ringed Dragonfly were hawking up and down the rides.  This one allowed close approach to approx 10 ft away.

The White-legged Damselfly below was seen near Boyton on the River Tamar (Devon side).  It was the only individual present.
