Yoke at the 2nd waterfall
The 5th waterfall - actually one of a series of waterfalls - small but nice
a few flower shots - well you know me a sucker for a pretty flower -
The first one is the humble daisy - I really liked the juxaposition with the water
This was a new tick for us meadow saxafrage Saxifraga granulata
This is I think Wood Speedwell Veronica chamaedrys
I liked the dead stump in amongst the 'live' fir trees - the shape of things to come
And finally to make a change from Dipper - a yellow wagtail
So far I have not found any aspect of nature I don’t want to photograph, its silly but true – I love all of it and struggle to do a walk in any reasonable time as I will stop to photograph everything and when you are using a Benbo tripod and a macro lens that takes time, the tripod is awesome for wildlife macro work but putting one into place to use has been described as trying to keep an octopus in a string bag.
Decided one area I really like is Dragons and Damsels, nope not computer games but insects - so joined BDS , http://www.british-dragonflies.org.uk/
Have to say best £20 spent for a long time. Went to Cosmeston lakes to do a bit of photography, not only damsels but spiders as well, okay not everyone’s friend but I like them – they eat flies !
but this one is Pisaura mirabilis - no common name
Got a lot of learning to do on all these beauties but willing to put the time in, got a long way to go with the photography as well !
This is a shot of a damsel that has just emerged and is described as teneral,
