I was looking through some old slides the other day, specifically looking for old pics from my motorcycling days to share with old friends on Facebook. I also found a few nature slides so I decided to scan them on to the computer to show them here.

At last some lovely warm weather, and luckily I had the day off work so I was able to get out and make the most of it. I walked along the same stretch of the River Arrow as in the previous posting, as this is generally a bit quieter than the nature reserve. Managed to get these shots of a Banded Demoiselle, A Speckled Wood showing why they are so aptly named, on the floor in a copse with dappled light, a Red Campion and lastly a small shoal of Perch showing in the shallows, unfortunately I did not have a polarizing filter for the Perch shot as this would have made it a bit clearer

I managed another quick walk along the banks of the River Arrow heading towards Studley this morning. The first shot is showing a carpet of Wild Garlic growing under the shade of the trees on the river bank, and the others are of Butterflies seen along the way. An Orange Tip, a tatty looking Peacock and a female Orange Tip.

First pics for a while having been busy with family commitments, work, etc, but managed to find this Slow worm today. It was pretty sluggish because of the cold spell we are having at the moment, but at least it enabled me to get a few shots

These pics were taken about a week ago, but I have not had chance to post them until now. They were taken at Salford Priors gravel pits, which are about six miles from Alcester. On arriving I could not believe how many Cormorants there were. I counted twenty four in one tree alone. No wonder the local anglers are up in arms. Also around were a couple of Herons, and best of all a little Egret. It was the first time I have seen one these, managing to get a really good view in the binoculars, but not close enough to photograph it.
