Another visit to Kibblesworth Pools a few days ago with more Common Darters around now very pale ones some in tandem, a pair of Emperors also coupled resting in the long grass till they went over to the trees and disappeared, still Four Spot Chaser , but Butterfly wise I did not see any Purple Hairstreak  
 Four-spot Chaser
 Emperors couple in tandem
 The same pair from the side
 and another closer showing how the male grasps onto the female
 I always like to at least try and get a flight shot
 This -Four Spot Chaser  settled near the ground as the sun went in
it sat there for some time allowing me to get closer , tried to get a shot from the front but it was off
