A walk through the yet to be mown fields alongside the 417 and close to Stutfield Brook turned up a dragonflylike creature that had a fluttery flight more like a butterfly than the whirring wing beats of a dragonfly. It was of course a female Beautiful Demoiselle and quite a spectacular individual it was too. The first photo shows the silvery wing reflectiveness caused by the bright sunlight.
