Dragonflies Hunting

At this time of year you are likely to see dragonflies hunting over the heather. They emerge from nearby ponds and are attracted by smaller insects that fly up from the heather and grass. They can be difficult to see clearly as they flit around but if you stand still they will sometimes fly towards you out of curiosity. The best place to get a good look at them is in the gorse bushes where they rest between bouts of hunting.
