This morning , with cloud due in by lunchtime , I spent a couple of hours wandering around up on the Common . First find was the remains of a dragonfly , regarded as towards the top of the insect foodchain , but this one obviously met it's match , snared in a spider's web , and eaten by the
Gorse / Ulex minor is taking it's opportunity to do so before it's larger relative . And finally , with the
butterfly season coming to a close , as demonstrated by this very faded Common Blue , some , like
this pair of Green-veined Whites think there is still time to get the job done .
