Seeing the Changes 492

Mega hot weather (around 28 degrees Centigrade). In Bynea, noted that Long-headed poppy (Papaver dubium) and Celery-leaved buttercup (Ranunculus sceleratus) were in flower. In Penclacwydd, got a nice shot of a Common blue damselfly (Enallagma cyathigerum) and in Loughor noted several Beautiful demoiselles (Calopteryx virgo). Was was also provided with a reminder of Charles Darwin by the arrival in Loughor of a Peppered moth (Biston betullaria) without a trace of Industrial Melanism.
