Stairway to the Moon?

Saturday, November 11th 2017

I have to admit that at this time of year flora and fauna, especially little bugs and beasties, are hard to find and so my eyes wander around to see what I can photograph that is inspiring to put on the blog.  Today I was cloud watching and spotted this stairway to the moon!

I did try try to find some clouds that looked like bugs and beasties but they were not co-operating, so I had to make do with nice fluffy clouds over the Scrapes.

Amazingly I did see some beasties, a Common Darter darted past me but soon disappeared into the vegetation.  A Kidney Spot Ladybird was sunbathing on the Ash at Kidney Spot Corner - where else would it be?

Talking of ladybirds, if you wish to prepare for next summer or hunt for hibernating ladybirds this winter, there is a Field Studies Council chart about ladybirds, for sale in the Field Centre.  There are many new titles available.

The calendars have arrived and are for sale for £6 from the Field Centre.
