Buff Tip

By Ade_Osman    
Not been around much due to other commitments and such like so please excuse the rather predictable upload from me today, I haven't got much else to post until I get around to sorting out a whole load of RAW files that are waiting for me to develop. Don't think this moth needs any real introduction, its a rather beautiful and twig-like Buff Tip, Phalera bucephala.

Hedgehog Update
Still getting the odd Hedgehog visitor into the garden late on in the evening and the Woodmice are still showing quite well. We're also getting the Fox still visiting briefly, usually very early in the morning just before dawn. A new camera has been added to the system, this covers the bird tables/feeders during the day which means the whole system with the exception of odd breaks for maintenance is now live 24/7 and hopefully if you visit the site you should find something to see. We've also been given HQ (High Quality) status on the stream, this means that the stream can now be viewed at 640x480pixels, this is in part due to the popularity of site. So many thanks to all those folk who've shown interest and have been avidly watching those hoggies Tongue For those folk not familiar with the site you can visit it by clicking on this link: Ade's Hedgehog & Garden Wildlife Cam Although at the moment I'm sorting the bird cams position out, but the best time to visit is after 9-10pm as that's when we might see the hogs Grin

Thanks again to all.......Who needs Autumn Watch Wink

Very nice Ade. And at least we don't get 45 minutes of rutting with your images every day. Grin

Brilliant clarity on the moth.

Brilliant viewing the new large sized garden cam - you're having bright sunshine at the moment...................we're having black clouds and pouring rain!!

A beautiful buff, Ade. The cam looks good but the bright sun is not helping (as you write).

This fella is rather cute, and he has magnificent camouflage. Carol

This crittur had just about the most perfect natural camouflage that I have seen on any creature Ade. This is superb. Congrats on the fine show with the 'hogs and garden stuff. Really informative.

Excellent as ever Ade.

I presume our hogs have hibernated. No sign for over a week now. Sad

The BBC can't afford the Big O, he's not known as Bristol's Premier Wildlife photographer for nothing you know!Wink In addition they'd have to pay for an interpretor and a translator so that the viewers would be able to understand his strong Bristolian dialect!Tongue This is a tremendously detailed close up of this cameouflaged character Ade, he blends in so well with that bark
