Insects and Ducklings enjoying the Sunshine

It's a beautiful day today and I took a walk along the John Muir Walkway at Musselburgh. Birdwatching is the usual draw to the area, but today the insects were well worth paying attention to.

With my increasing interest in lichens, I was fascinated by this tree, but what really stands out are the two spot ladybirds hiding in amongst the lichens

When I got to the Boating Pond, I was delighted to see about 6 common blue damselflies, though only one stopped for a photo

Meanwhile the eider ducks have got ducklings

I share you love of lichens. Not only the colors, but the intricate patterns they make as they grow.

So far, I am not seeing damsels or dragonflies, but probably will sometime this week. Our spring has been exceptionally cold.

Lovely to see the ducklings.

All the best Jan
