A 'Lek' of Speckled Woods.

A 'Lek' of Speckled Woods.

Between the showers I found a woodland clearing sheltered from the wind.
There were 5 Speckled Woods. A nice pristine female stayed in one spot while
4 males tumbled about in the air fighting it out. They mobbed a Meadow Brown
that appeared. One of them settled beside the female, but she obviously
wasn't impressd. She just sat there. I hoped she would lead him up to the
top of this little oak tree and mate. I waited and waited. Then my dog came
sniffing along and put them both up. Oh well.
