A few bits and bobs …

For various reasons … weather, health, deus ex machina … trips to the local Nature Reserves have been a bit few and far between lately so, without any new bird pictures, quite a bit of my time is being spent on tidying up computers etc.

These are a few of the pictures I have taken with my iPhone on previous trips out. I always have the phone handy for little bits and pieces that might take my eye, but don’t merit getting the heavyweight out for. I think they¬†came from Langford Lowfields and Attenborough Nature Reserve, Nottinghamshire, and Chambers Farm Wood, Lincolnshire.

These little creatures are all from Chambers’ Farm Woods, in Lincolnshire. My favourite place to be in summer, because of the wide variety of butterflies, dragonflies, insects etc. Today, we saw the first White Admiral and the first Black Hairstreak of the season. Alas, no pictures, but I wasn’t disappointed with the rest of the day.

From the top: newly emerged female broad bodied chaser, broad bordered bee hawk moth, speckled wood butterfly, mating damselflies, a froghopper (love froghoppers!) and a marsh fritillary butterfly.Broad Bodied ChaserBroad Bordered Bee Hawk MothSpeckled WoodMating DamselfliesFroghopperMarsh Fritillary
