I think this is a male and a female , perhaps waiting for night to fall to mate. Was taken in Ross-Shire, in the Scottish Highlands, at about 7pm one evening in July. There in July it doesn't get dark till about 11pm. I have seen and photographed one of these before there in the summer months, but these two together was a rare treat.
