Never forgotten by tomcat

Never forgotten

Very sad. Words really aren't adequate.

Little Grebe

Lovely. These things turn up on the local river but keep well away. I have a number of shots at maximum zoom (1200mm equiv.) - enough to recognise what they are....

Could be...perhaps we should have a caption competition?

But, while typing this I checked on the internet and apparently they sound like 'two stones rubbing together.' So it's neither, really, they speak StoneSmile

Thanks Nathan.
The upper wing surfaces are pretty good too but I've never managed to see one show them except when I didn't have a camera with me. Such is life.

Thanks, Nathan. They are spectacular to watch but rather frustrating to photograph.

Quote: Yes, an Elephant Hawk Moth caterpillar - aren't they wonderful (even if they do strip your garden plants!). Smile

Yes, they are - but I'm not the gardener!

Kim - thanks. I agree it is a bit busy - to me it looks like the stem is a stick of rhubarbWink and they somehow managed to get a melon ball in there too...

many thanks - I should have guessed from the markings that it was some sort of carpet moth. It isn't in my book - I think I'd better get another one!

Blue Butterfly by petebfrance

Blue Butterfly

Thanks - this one did settle but not for very long. I think it's a question of having the right plants to attract them as they always seem to be passing through to somewhere else at this time of year.

Thank-you. I'm particularly pleased with the 'backdrop' provided by the houses in the background.

V2 Chapelle St. Laurent

Gary
thank-you for your comment. Presumably the church was designed to impress the natives as they approach - and to demonstrate how puny the menhir / old religion was - so this time the obvious angle was, well, quite appropriate...

Anne thank-you for comment. I debated (with myself, of course, and not too loudly Wink) whether or not to put in the post on the left. My original crop did not include it, maybe I should have stuck with it!

let there be light

Excellent. I love the shot - it's true that the lighthouse is 'overexposed' and it would be nice if that could be rectified, but I do wonder if doing so would ruin the dream-like effect. Mods so far don't 'do it for me' whereas this does. All subjective?

Lace by petebfrance

Lace

Thank-you for comments. It's actually bobbin lace, not needlework. I should have made that clear so I'll amend the description.

Green Woodpecker by Steppenwolf

Green Woodpecker

Very nice. They are quite common around here, but I've never managed to photograph one except in the distance. Here in Brittany it's said if the green woodpecker sings (well, it's a sort of croak, really) then it's going to rain. It's usually true, but it rains a lot here anywayWink They eat ants - very useful creatures.
