Re: Steady, you'll have someone's eye out with that!

That is fantastic. Exceptional sharpness and definition, and great behaviour.

Re: Fen Raft Spiders 2019

A fascinating spider and good to see the reintroductions are working. Shame it is so far to travel, but would be a good one to visit.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

Hi Mark

I am 99% that you have a Hairy Dragonfly as number one. It is first to emerge, so if it is May/June then you have a high chance of seeing that. Plus the Southern Migrant Hawker is a very...

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

I love this one Alf. Always enjoy a Bogof :) Great clarity and colour too.
