Re: Andrew555

More great Dorset shots Andrew those Walls are particularly lush :D :mrgreen: Mind you Lodmoor isn't what it was - years ago you could get right out to the middle of it and there were proper Hides, not like the 'Magic roundabouts' they had last time I was there :roll: :lol:

Re: Silver-washed Fritillary – Favourite Photo of 2017

Silver-washed Fritillary This was taken during my family holiday to Devon and became my choice for three reasons: 1. It was totally unexpected being on Buddleia, at a Farm Park on the edge of Dartmoor and also during the back end of August. 2. It was the only normal female I managed to capture on fi...

Re: Silver-studded Blue – Favourite Photo of 2017

Silver-studded Blue This is another species that I only rally encountered at one site, the fantastically named Slop Bog. If I’m honest I don’t think I could visit any other site for this species as when writing about it for (an eventual) posting would feel bland due to a less interesting headline. T...

Re: Silver-spotted Skipper – Favourite Photo of 2017

Silver-spotted Skipper This was taken on m only trip to Broughton Down. I don’t know what happened this year but I just didn’t seem to be able to make the same number of trips out as previous years. So I really only had one site’s worth to select from. I chose this one as I like the way the butterfl...

Middle Street 23-09-2017 When I look back on this trip it is with fondness. It was one of those serendipitous days where you don’t set out to do anything but things fall into your lap. The weather was warm and sunny and it being the weekend and not knowing how long it would last all the family heade...

Re: Wurzel

Cheers Goldie :D There seems to have been a noticable shift towards Common Blues being more blue than brown over recent years - it would be interesting to find out if it is an actual shift or whether it's an artefact of people being more attracted to the blue females and so taking more photos of tha...

Re: Andrew555

Plenty of great stuff there Andrew but my favourite has to be the Greenstreak - a cracking shot which really puts the butterfly into context both scale and behaviour wise :D :D

Re: Bugboys mission

Great set of images Bugboy - the area is very reminiscent of Poole Harbour - or at least what it used to be like when the Power Station was still about :D

Larkhill 19-09-2017 As I was due to stop off at Teddy’s Vets for his meat (the excellent Ronniethe poo no less!) I made sure my camera was ready as I’d also be able to sneak in about 10 minutes at Larkhill… I started at the main Car Park and made my way down the Eastbound path but it was very quiet ...

Re: Ringlet – Favourite Photo of 2017

Ringlet This was taken on the same day as my Purple Hairstreak and is my favourite as it’s my best ‘arete’ to date in terms of lack of spots. Also it was taken during an interlude/intermission from photographing a White-letter Hairstreak. Mind you when it came to selecting Ringlets I didn’t have an ...

Re: Red Admiral – Favourite Photo of 2017

Red Admiral This was another shot taken with my nieces’ assistance at Kingston Lacey which I’ve waxed lyrical about before. It’s my favourite for that reason mainly but also because it clearly shows the white spot that makes it a ‘bialbata’ from the underside. DSC_1244 - Copy-002.JPG Have a goodun W...
