Re: Wurzel

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: Goldie M

Lovely shots of the Orchids Goldie :D I'm not really up on my Botany being a Zoologist by trade so I won't put my tuppence worth in on the ID, I'd only as far as 'Plant', 'Orchid' and other 'Orchids' :wink: :lol:

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...

Andrews right on the IDs; Shoveler, Goosanders (great shots BTW :mrgreen: ) and a Willow Tit, I was a bit unsure about that one to start with but the paler area on the wings sold it to me as a Willow Tit, an ID feature I'd not been aware of before :D :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Great Bullfinch as well :D Gl...

Great shots Andrew :D I've enjoyed staring at the Starling murmuration to see what beautiful shapes pop into view - so far I've seen a slightly deformed Snowy Owl and a turtle swimming towards me - though my imagination was working overtime making that one out :shock: :lol:
