New Forest Macro

On the 2nd June, I went on an afternoons macro photographing visit to the New Forest.  The weather was pleasant and not to hot.  It is also the day I shot the video of the Male Broad-bodied Chaser.  Parking at Standing Hat Car Park I ventured to Pignal Inclosure and these are the results of the afternoons visit.

First an still shot of the Broad-bodied Chaser.
