Garden Grass-Veneer, Chrysoteuchia culmella. Nikon D5200 Tokina 100mm f22 1/250 ISO 100 While watching TV on a warm summer evening I like to leave the curtains open so I can watch the bats swooping outside. Not very fuel efficient bats – some need to eat…

Speckled Wood, Pararge aegeria. Nikon D5200 Tokina 100mm f16 1/350 ISO 200 Nothing unusual, but I rather like this shot.

Nikon D5200 Tokina 100mm f22 1/750 ISO 200 I can’t say I’m a fan of the harlequin ladybird, but I am partial to a watercress sandwich, so I’m in two minds about this shot…

Yellow Rattle, Rhinanthus minor. Nikon D5200 Tokina 100mm f22 1/250 ISO 100 Yellow Rattle has very positive associations for me – summer, meadows, insects, biodiversity – just seeing the first flowers of the year makes me happy. A thing of beauty and an…
