Fledged

It was such a din was coming from the reedy ditch we were walking alongside.

We were on a days birding tour out on the marshes last week. The reed stems were quaking and shimmying from where the noise was emanating. It didn’t take long for us to see the perpetrators of our broken peace. A newly fledged nest of Reed Warblers were still squabbling for their parents attentions.

Lonely and Single

The single spike of Lesser Butterfly Orchid in the whole of Norfolk was in flower the other day. Or at least I don’t know of any others. It looked particularly lonely amid the Southern Marsh, Fragrant Orchids and the odd Marsh Helleborine. Lonely but beautiful.

Chillaxed

As a photographer you don’t want your subject to show any startled or unnatural behaviour. You want it to act as if you weren’t there. You want it to be relaxed. This Muntjac we saw the other day was taking that to another level.

 

He did wake up after a little while though…

Close up and Personal

This Broad bodied Chaser was hung up drying after it had emerged the other day. Find these insects so fascinating.

Exorcet

Amid the clouds of damselflies, Four spot Chasers, Emperors and Black tailed Skimmers on Selbrigg fishing lake this afternoon was a lesser Emperor Dragonfly. It was not easy to see as it would suddenly ‘jink’ into bright water and effectively disappear only to reappear five minutes later in a completely different place. It never came really close and it was never seen to settle. If it wasn’t easy to see it was even harder to photograph and whatever it was feeding on … it was high octane stuff!

So Blue

This Holly Blue Butterfly was resting in the borders at Falcon Cottage the other day. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of it. Butterflies are such miracles it’s difficult to perceive they can fly let alone look so beautiful.
