Those less than young people can remember the days of using film and taking it to the shop to be developed. A wait of at least a week for them to be returned and the disappointment when that one special photo you really wanted to take, was blurred. How things have changed. Digital photography and the development of cameras and iPhones have opened up a new world.
At FGC we take photos. Some are taken for the record and you have to tell people what it is you have actually photographed, like this Mole.
Orchids are beautiful, but they can frustrate us as to their parentage. This, said with confidence, is a Common Spotted Orchid, unless someone says otherwise. The shape and markings on the petals are beautiful.
Dawn at the Crater makes you feel on top of the world and it is a magical place, be it a red sunrise
or a silver one.
It looks like the Common Frogs, spawning later than usual due to the low temperatures, have come to the ponds, spawned and left, with very few being seen or heard. There is plenty of spawn so hopefully there will be a lot of tadpoles to watch swimming around. Now we are waiting the return of the Common Toads. They are usually very co-operative and allow photos to be taken. Sometimes you not only get the Toad but also the patterns and reflections around the Toad.
It does not matter what time of year or which part of the day, there is usually something that appeals and can be photographed. Our photos give us great pleasure, not only in the taking of them but seeing the results immediately. Sharing what you have found is special. Mobile phones call people to where there is a good opportunity to take something common or rare, usual or unusual. Our photos are used for education, displays, presentations and reports.
Keep your cameras to hand and you never know what you will record, in plain view or hidden in the grass.
