My photograph for October, November and December

The last part of the year I haven’t done my photo of the month, but as it is New Year’s Eve I thought I would play catch up and start 2019 with a clean slate.

October

Cycling home one night along a pitch black country lane, I was amazed to find a tiny green caterpillar making the grand epic journey of crossing the road. It was nearly at its journey end, so I watched its final steps on the grey tarmac before it reached the green grass of the verge. I used my bike lights to help me take this photo and brighten the path of the caterpillar.

November

I took a wander round my local patch on one of the very few days I had off when the weather was good. The sun was out and gave a tiny amount of warmth to the winter’s air. That’s when I spotted this beauty. I was thrilled to get a snap of this lovely bright wasp.

December

Bit of urban wildlife for this month. A gathering of feral pigeons grabbed my attention. Putting the camera down at their level I was able to get this photo of the hungry birds.

As this is my last post for 2018 I will wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and the very best for 2019.

#30DaysWild – Day 24 – Bug hunting

With it being the last day of National Insect Week, today I went on a bug hunt!

Taking a stroll around farmer’s field, I saw an amazing array of insects. A wonderfully relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Day 5 #30DaysWild

On a beautiful summer day like today, my front door is a real sun trap! I decided it was time to see what wildlife lived on my doorstep (quite literally). So I stepped outside and sat down on my door mat.


I was thrilled to see how much life was there, I step by them every day and I see them, they are part of my life. But sitting there spending time watching all those amazing little creatures was mesmerising!

Day 4 #30DaysWild

One of my favourite jobs at work was my first duty of today, an invertebrate survey in the Nature Reserve! The place is so beautiful and teeming with life! Everywhere I looked there was something to see!

Invert survey or a bug hunt, looking for those little gorgeous creatures is always rewarding!

My 2015

My 2015 was a good year, it was also a very busy one!

Choosing a photograph per month to blog was both enjoyable and a challenge. It’s something I’ll be carrying through into 2016.

There were many other photographs that I loved to, so here are a few highlights .

Have a wonderful 2016 everyone!

My Photograph from December

December’s unseasonable mild weather has left a few insects confused. They’re up and about all over the place.

I got my own surprise on Christmas day, a wasp searching for a sheltered spot in amongst some bracket fungus on an old tree stump.
