Re: Large White - Favourite Photo of 2017

Large White This was also taken at Kingston Lacey but later in the year and shows the second brood Large White. I like this shot because it illustrates the difference in behaviour that I’ve observed between the broods. The spring brood are really flighty, only stopping almost when they been becalmed...

Re: Large Skipper - Favourite Photo of 2017

Large Skipper This was taken during a family visit to Kingston Lacey. It was taken prior to lunch and so I remember the immediacy of trying to get my shot before being called back into the fold of the family for lunch. When I was looking through my Large Skipper shots this one stood because it was a...

Re: Pete Eeles

Fantastic shots Pete - even better when viewed enlarged :shock: :D In the 'parasitised' shot is the small object to the right of shot next to the egg the parasite/pradator - it looks vaguely like a bee/wasp or am I seeing things? :?

More cracking shots there Phil - especially like the Red grouse as that's a species I still haven't seen :D :mrgreen: Also some really lush looking Small Torts - if they were rarer they would probably be even more desirable than a Purple Emperor i reckon. :D Your rodent ID meant I had to use my mamm...

Re: Large Blue - Favourite Photo of 2017

Large Blue Some Favourite selections are really tricky to make as there are for species that you either see in huge numbers or at a multitude of sites. However for the Large Blue this year it was a relatively simple task as I only visited the one site – Daneways and due to the baking hot weather the...
