Sunbird by kjteng


Nice - amazing colours!

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....

Very sad. Words really aren't adequate.

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....

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.....

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...

It was an unusually patient butterfly and I was able to get very close.

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!

Many thanks for your kind comment.

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.

V2 Chapelle St. Laurent by petebfrance

V2 Chapelle St. Laurent

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...
