They are tremendous, the photography is excellent. Thanks John & Sue.
I can confirm you have a Grayling there, but it is no longer common. probably because it is an insect of short turf and bare ground. With the proliferation of course grasses, bracken, etc. on the moors and coast and the anti-grazing campaign it doesn't stand much chance I'm afraid. Could you give me a grid, date, etc. so I can put the record into the database.JohnCornwall Butterfly Recorder
One helluva set there john and sue. Itsa shame about the Grayling losing its habitat.Sam
Oh my goodness...These are just beautiful! Your Macro photography knows no bounds! Wonderful!!!
Beautiful, colorful images! Spectacular macro photographs of stunning dragonflies and insects. Lovely bird photos too!
Beautiful set of images! I especially like the dragonfly shots. The one of the Robin is supurb--he is so different from our American Robin.
Fantastic set of images as one would expect from the Masters of Macro, had just a quick look John but could not ID that Caterpillar from my books. That Greyling is a real find Well Done.CU Soon.
Superb set again.The Buff Arches is a beauty. It reminds me of a fancy cloak. And I'm so glad I'm not a spider lol
Great shots, as always. I can't find that caterpillar either. Try posting it on:http://www.nhm.ac.uk/natureplus/community/identification
I love coming to your blog...I see things I've never seen before. Love the little robin photo and all the moths!
Great stuff..love the macro bugs too..
Always a great selection. Just looking at the vast number of labels on the left - many great photographs!
Thanks everyone, we really appreciate all your comments.We didn't realise that the Grayling had become so uncommon, now we know why we've never seen one before.Andy- We posted the Caterpillar on the site you suggested but no luck(lots of good stuff on there though), so we tried UK Butterflies and finally found out it is a Sawfly Caterpillar, just got to decide which one.Thanks again, John and Sue
Spectacular!! I have never seen something like that Tortoise Bug and it is really cute. :)
Brilliant collection. You always deliver!
