Up Close to Nature.

This is a selection of recent insect shots. The Privet Hawk-Moth was found (as a chrysalis) in the garden of our friend Nigel, who brought it around for John to see, once it had pupated.

Scarce Chaser

As we were in the area we paid a short visit to the Grand Western Canal at the weekend and got these newly emerged Scarce Chasers, a first for us. We saw 4 or 5 individuals.

Birds, Butterflies and Bugs.

Just a few bits from the last week or so. Mostly Butterflies and Bugs, (it's that time of year again). The Peregrine was taken at an undisclosed site on the coast.

This 24-spot Ladybird is also known as the Hairy Ladybird.
