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…
A few weeks ago thi water scorpion was found. I’ve not been doing to much aquarium photography lately, but I didnt have a good adult water scorpion photo so I had to have a go with this one.
A few photos of a sleepy swan at RSPB Rainham Marshes.
Last Autumn I came across this scene of a garden spider eating a pair of ruddy darters. I have more from this scene, which I’ll post at a later date.
A few New Forest Landscapes
There has recently been a campaign in a local park to try and get dog owners to pick up their dogs mess, rather than leave it on the path or in meadows where people and children may come across it. A big poster campaign involved putting up lots of signs/posters, many of which quickly ended…
One of the best find in the New forest was this Beef steak fungus. The great thing about fungi is you can try them from all different angles and focal lengths, thanks to the fact they don’t move!
While in the New Forest by a river I spotted one of the large pond skater or water strider species on a river. So I tried out the DA*300mm, with extension tubes on for closer focus distance and attached the flash to increase the shutter speed in the poor light. These photos were the result.
