03:15 start to head to Arne hoping for Barn Owls and Ospreys.  No real luck with either.  But found Raft and Wasp Spiders.  Quite pleased with the Raft Spider on a reed in front of the pond.  Back lit by the sun, with macro flash illuminating the spider.

Managed to get a record shot of a Purple Emperor in the woods this morning - see the spot on the wind.  Also, a Jay and a Gatekeeper butterfly.

Popped down to Arne early this morning to see what was about.  Watervoles, Dragonflies, Damselflies,young Greater Spotted Woodpeckers and Grasshoppers.

Another year where I've failed to get any decent Purple Emperor photos in the woods.  A few seen, but none grounded for a good purple photo.  Here's a Sliver-Washed Fritillary from yesterday.

Finally from Skomer, some Puffin photos.  A lot of Puffin photos in fact.  Spent most of my time trying to get nice in-flight shots, some of which I'm very happy with.  But I've included a few of my other favourite shots, including one of a Puffling emerging from its burrow (the first few Pufflings were starting to emerge on our last day on the island).
