Sutton Hoo Miscellany - Dragonfly and Caterpillar among the Mounds

David saw this ?Ruddy Darter (see here) yesterday at NT Sutton Hoo: I doubt we will see many more dragons this year.

October has been exceptional, but the low light betrays the fact that the season is turning.

The light also accentuates the mounds. You can just see Tranmer House through the trees.

It has been a stunning autumn for colour.

Thanks again to David for this photo. Is it a Spilosoma/Tigermoth larva? Please leave a comment if you know!

How do you tell a ruddy darter from a common darter?

Lovely photos, the light on the grass is beautiful. What a cute caterpillar too, though I can't help with id.
