Some shots of a Rabbit back in 2012. Note the mosquitoes in these photos, the park is swarming with them in spring/summer!
Back in May I had one day where I got some shots of orange tip butterflies Anthocharis cardamines. There were a few males around. And a female reacted positively to interest from one male.
Been playing with my Pentax Q today and managed this shot of a pied wagtail. It was over 10m away and this shot is about 2/3rds of its original size. The reach of this set-up is great, although it is a bit fiddly.
When in Kefalonia I visited Livadi Marshes. There on the edge of the road was what I thought was a tortoise. I picked it up and moved it a safer spot for photos (it thanked me by emptying its bladder!) We Identified it later I realised it was in fact a Balkan terrapin I left…
On Saturday I had a trip round Sheppey, thanks to Phil (@sheppeywildlife on twitter) and saw some great birds. The weather was very dull but I got my best ever shots of 3 birds. Little owl. Snow bunting And red legged or French partridge. I was a great day, thanks to Phil for showing me…
Back in October I headed to Richmond Park. There I took some photos of the Red deer stags. The calves in this one seem unimpressed by the stags bellowing. A couple of youngsters were practising rutting. I also photographed the hinds. This one had some jackdaws feeding on it!
Another video from my bushnell trail cam, this time of 3 foxes.
Here are a few shots of a magpie from a couple of months ago. These are quite wary birds and Ive never really managed a good shot of one, but I was reasonably happy with these.
I’m a big fan of foxes, but there is a downside to them appearing in your garden…lol (To be honest, cats are a bigger problem for this sort of thing!)
After the success of the Pond olive mayfly larva post I thought I post about another of the ponds amazing creatures: the Phantom midge larva. I took some photos of these creatures today. They are specialised predators that live a mostly planktonic life. Floating around in open water they would be easily spotted and vulnerable…
