A hoverfly, a bee and a damselfly

A hoverfly Volucella pellucens ? on my kitchen window

One of  several of these bumble bees feeding on Creeping Thistle flowers at Ringstead Downs.  Thanks to Nick Owens for identifying it as a male Hill Cuckoo Bumblebee Bombus rupestris a cuckoo of Bombus lapidarius.

A male Banded Demoiselle Calopteryx splendens seen at the west end of Ringstead Downs.  I saw on in almost the same place last year.
