Sulphur Tuft, Hypholoma fasciculare. Sony DSC-HX20V f3.2 4.5mm 1/15 ISO 800 Out early in the morning after the heavy rain and there was a very different feeling. Quite cool and a brown hare which had spent the night sheltering in the wood went crashing…

Long-tailed tit. Nikon D5200 Tamron 150-600mm f9.5 600mm 1/750 ISO 400 This youngster, still slightly wide-eyed at the world, was quite confident because he wasn’t alone but part of a small flock. However, some of his mates were juvenile Blue Tits and…

Yellow Dung Fly, Scathophaga stercoraria. Nikon D5200 Tokina 100mm f22 1/250 ISO 200 We call them all dung flies, but only the larvae of only a few species of these flies feed on animal dung. The adults don’t, they eat insects and feed on flowers. I’m…

Nettle Weevil, Phyllobius pomaceus. Nikon D5200 Tokina 100mm f22 1/90 ISO 400 I like weevils, but there are so many green ones they are virtually impossible to identify for a mere mortal like me. Unless you catch them munching on their food plant. This is…
