Orchids, lizards and moths

Common Lizard, Zootoca vivipara
On Saturday I met Mark for more orchid photography and we then spent  time at Iping common by the car park looking for the nationally rare click beetle I found on Wednesday, Ampedus sanguinolentus. No success with that, but we did see of other insects, including a Golden-ringed Dragonfly and a Broad-bodied Chaser. Mark found a cluster of Garden Spider spiderlings on a leaf. When disturbed they disbursed, then slowly reformed the cluster. Yellow-barred Longhorn moths fluttered round a birch and settled on various leaves. Lizards posed on the fencing and leaves.
