At Last Some Warm Weather

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

A Quick Walk Along The River Arrow

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.

Slow worm

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
