Cormorant (Lydney boating lake)

This Cormorant might be rather young, it is the way she/he keeps on smiling. Don't you think?

Common Crane at Slimbridge WWT

They are sexually looks alike, which is easy, simply by writing it down, who are you she/he?

Golden-tailed Dragonfly at the Forest of Dean

It was about this time I'd seen them last year, in Nagshead, not the place that I found them. There were two of them, floating and stopping for a rest.

Jackdaw (Lydney)

It is pleasing, searching in the ground for some food. Of course it will get some, people always have plenty.

Otters at Slimbridge

It is a picture of absolutely gift of an Otter. The trip was under threat, I went without the 1.4x extender, and I had 2x extender. Funny really, I really could have taken pictures with nothing. I cried.

Large Skipper butterfly.

It might have been a small and large Skipper, I should be more studious, but I will look in my book. After my dinner.

Jay (Cyril Hart Arboretum, FOD)

I have a problem, (we know that), it is because I can't get their eyes, tell me, what am I doing wrong?

Whitethroat in motion (Naas Lane, Lydney)

It is here again, I love the Whitethroat. The male come here in the spring, about 2 weeks before the females, and leaves about autumn. Ah, they are tremendous birds. This is the female.

Cinnabar moth at Foxes Bridge (FOD)

This is a beautiful moth but, lethal, its wings carry the poison, and when anything eats it, it is dead, from some other animals or birds, it doesn't care very much, cos' he'll be dead as well. Not very good eh? Sorry about the grass.

Four-spotted Chaser at Foxes Bridge

This is back, Four-spotted Chaser. He always comes to this point. Having noticed that I wouldn't harm him, he stood there for photographing.

Green Hairsteak butterfly (FoD, Foxes Bridge)

I had this in mind to try and find it, and it came out. The Green Hairstreak flies about mid May and June. They are difficult to spot.

Sedge Warbler (Newport Wetlands, RSBP)

I had a lovely day at Newport Wetlands, a long way from the Forest of Dean. There were a lot of pictures, but they all came out badly, there was a strong wind, that blew away the good sort of pictures. As you can see, they were a bit blurry.

Calf (The marshes, Lydney)

The calf was wobbling, first steps.
And, wobbled around trying to feed his mum
This is when he'd just been born
Now, it's walkies time.
The mothers time, come and drink. It is that time, does he ever think, that he is going to be a meal for anybody.
