A REAL SURPRISE. (24/07/15)

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._MG_9819

The last picture shows a Noon Fly; it is the first one I’ve seen in Scotland.

Enjoy your weekend.

    1. 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.

    1. R.Mac, I don't usually bother with them as they seem a bit obvious.

    1. Ian, I don't know how that happened. Must be an early and late edition

  6. 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.

  7. I think my favourite one would be No3 with the sew drops.

  9. 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.
