Went photographing again yesterday and got a few reasonable shots.
Darters are pretty easy to photograph because they land on the ground or steps in front of you and seem to love wooden railings – any wood, in fact. We did see a hawker, but it was far more elusive and there were quite a few really big dragonflies but we only saw them passing – frustrating!
LOVE the fact that you can see the hairs on these, even though you can’t see them with the naked eye.
Look at the ‘face’ on this one – it looks really SCARY! I thought it was a waps but looking at this, I’m now wondering if it’s another species of bee, like the one above. I actually found this one by accident, when trying to catch a small butterfly and couldn’t resist shooting it.
Isn’t this HORRIBLE?????? I have a thing about fungi, though, so I think I’m going to take lots of photos of ‘em when I find ‘em – as long as it looks interesting, lol.
