Early Morning on the Somerset Levels

I decided to get up super early yesterday morning and head to the Somerset levels to see what I could find. I made it to the car park a little before 6am and was greeted by very thick mist which was persistant to say the least! But none the less I did get fantastic views of a great white egret fishing for eels, although I did manage to get some really good shots the mist put pay to them being any good to use as they are, so I decided to go a little arty on the shot below to bring out the egret. Once the egret flew off I headed over the road to Ham Wall and was treated to wonderful views of 3 great crested grebes and numberous litle grebes, so all in all a pretty good day!

Great White Egret fishing for eels, must have been hungry
while I was watching it, it caught at least 4 big eels!

Take Off

This ladybird was just about to take off, unfortunately this flight
ended about a second later when it crash landed

Wolf Spider, Pardosa Spp.

Must be a big, scary world out there for one so small!

7 Spot Ladybird

I found this ladybird in the garden yesterday while clearing out the rhubarb patch, it was a real delight to photograpgh having been away for the majority of last year and not being able to explore the garden!

First Post!!!

Well, it's taken a while but I have finally got a blog sorted out to keep you all informed of what's going on and what I'm up to. 

Just got back from Focus on Imaging and had a great time on the Kata stand with everyone and they have some great new bags. I'm currently busy sorting out entries for a competition and trying to sort out vaccinations for up-coming trips abroad. 

Here's a lovely fresh image of a snowdrop to get going
