Conservatory Capture

This came into my conservatory on Sunday morning, it flew around a while terrifying the living daylights out of me, so I did not get a good shot of flying, it settled on the ceiling facing away from me, and I managed to get a few shots.






I have got a few images in various proximity, some more detailed than others, in fact probably got too many to process, I just wish I had got some in it's natural habitat.

Re: Conservatory Capture

Very nice - looks like it was admiring itself in the glass.

Re: Conservatory Capture

Lovely sharp shots of a female Southern Hawker. Haven't seen one this year yet.


Thanks for sharing.

Re: Conservatory Capture

Thanks guy's, with this information I googled the species and was amazed to find that these prehistoric creatures take up to three years to develop.

I was little blasť about it coming in and if I'm honest I am quite uneducated on insect's like this, and now I am quite pleased to have got so many images, and some fellow photographers to share it with.

Thank you for viewing

Well, we do often have "Jammie Dodgers" in the house but not for long, otherwise it may have been attracted to the noise of my high pitched singing voice

Re: Conservatory Capture

Excellent shots, difficult to track them down in the wild and to have one come to you is amazing. Were you trained in Hameln?

Haha......... very close in fact, I am originally from Hamel..ton (hamilton).

At 46 my magic pipes have faded, although I did find two mice in my outside bin the other day, munching their way through some old crackers.

Thank you David, I am beginning to appreciate the visit I had more and more.
