All Things Bright and Beautiful

Friday, September 7th 2012

Many wildflowers are still at their best and the insects are frantically harvesting the late nectar. This Peacock butterfly was seen close to the pond-dipping platforms on the Common Fleabane.


A few metres away a Small Skipper was also making the most of the late summer sunshine.

Just outside the Field Centre, Richard photographed this Eyed Ladybird which was feeding on aphids on an old log.

There are still places on Richard's macro photography course tomorrow. If you are interested please go to the Field Centre at 10.00am. The course is all day and costs £25 per person. See the events section for details.
