Reed Cormorant and young by fatfranksfolley

Reed Cormorant and young

Nice. The red eyes are interesting - our local river / sea cormorants have green eyes!

A Little Confused..... by PhilT2

A Little Confused.....

Excellent. This year I managed to photograph one in bay locally (Pors Tarz in Finistère) but against the light. I was surprised how big it was!

Bluetit feeding

Thanks for the recipe - it's so easy just to buy them, but maybe worth a try - at least then you know that everything is fresh.

found a peanut by gravelgerttie

found a peanut

Nice. Can small birds open peanuts? I ask because we can only get them unshelled (or roasted, salted or whatever which I don't think would be good for the birds) so we haven't bought any because we are too idle to shell them.

Winter Starling by petebfrance

Winter Starling

Hmm - I didn't know that. Never had a problem here, but I can imagine that could happen.
Will have to look into this further - we gave up on the wire feeders because of their reputation for spreading disease, and of course, stringing up a prepared ball is so much easier.
Getting rather complicated - perhaps it's best to just not feed them at all or use bird tables....

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?

Je ne sais pas, Jack

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, Tony. I did wonder if it was a good idea to upload this one.....

Clouded Yellow

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.

Definite hand-painted look - not a bad design, thoughSmile

Catterpillar by petebfrance


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!

Passion Flower by petebfrance

Passion Flower

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...

Pretty Chalk Carpet Moth by petebfrance

Pretty Chalk Carpet Moth

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!
