Some birds can become harder to locate at this time of year, so many birders turn to identifying some of the striking insects currently around, which can make very rewarding subjects for macro photography. Here are several examples of insects all taken within the last fortnight. Many more butterflies, dragonflies and moths should be on the wing in the next few weeks, if the weather stays fine!
