The weather was forecast to be awful today with hail, heavy rain and wind. It has been gorgeous. To celebrate I thought I’d have a change and wander out with a wide angle lens.
The last picture shows a Noon Fly; it is the first one I’ve seen in Scotland.
Enjoy your weekend.
I especially like the ladybird - pictured against a blurry countryside. Nice one guv'nor.
YP, I will own up. Te skill is in balancing the ladybird on the grass. I then hold the grass a few inches in front of the lens. choose the background and click.
Pretty...I love lady bugs.
R.Mac, I don't usually bother with them as they seem a bit obvious.
Nice shots and congratulations for your first Noon Fly.Have a nice weekend!
Kovacs, thanks I have seen them before but not this far north.
Love, love, love your photos. The ladybug one is just stunning as is the water droplets on the flower.
C.M. Thank you.
I think this post is a duplicate. Super photos all the same Adrian.
Ian, I don't know how that happened. Must be an early and late edition
It's always good to try something different. You look at things from a different point and may see something you've never seen before.
Red, I agree.
I think my favourite one would be No3 with the sew drops.
John, I went out with the spray bottle for that one.
Why is it called a noon fly? Lovely captures.
Kate, I'm not sure, they are a muscid fly related to the house fly. They breed in cow muck and the adults eat pollen. They seem to enjoy sunbathing so maybe that is why. Their posh name is Mesembrina meridiana.
