Back in May I went hunting for some macro subjects in a nettle bed. I came across this mosquito Also there was this nettle weevil.
Here area few photos of a crab spider with its fly prey. It dropped the fly after sucking it dry and posed for a couple more shots.
A few photos off the hard drive, of a 4 legged common frog tadpole, taken in my photographic aquarium. As you can see it was well on its way to becoming a little froglet. Its a subject I hope to improve my photos of next year.
Some photos of a caddisfly larva, taken with my aquarium set up
A few more photos of the wonderful vixen.
A quick one photo post of a large red damselfly on a white background.
A few months ago I came across this fox raiding a bin. By sitting still I got her to pretty much ignore me and caoming quite close, though she did stop to check me out at one point! She had obviously learned that us humans leave a lot of food waste in the bin.
Back in June I came across this emperor dragonfly egg laying in the RSPB’s pond at Wat Tyler Country Parks.
Here are some red fox photos I took earlier in the year.
A couple of nice finds from pond and borrow dyke survey. First was this opossum shrimp my first ever. They are called this because they carry their young round ina pouch, like marsupials. Secon was this screech or squeak beetle, famous for squeaking when it feels threatened. That is the only good shot I managed…
