ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN
ALL IMAGES WILL ENLARGE WITH A LEFT CLICK

Monday, 10 September 2018

SUNNY SUNDAY.

Lots of rain showers around at the moment but I did get out for a couple of hours yesterday without getting soaked. Anything to avoid editing video.
I decided to go and look for Crested Newts, the pond is easy to find as it has a sign identifying it. The newts are as elusive as ever.

Whilst scanning the pond for any sign of movement an Emperor Dragonfly flew past. I didn't realise they lived this far north but I am a hundred percent sure it was one. I settled down to wait for it to return and ten minutes later it did and settled briefly on a Bilberry. It never came back again. 
On we wandered. The fungi are starting to show and though these images could be sharper it's good to see them.

 Orange Peel Fungus

Fly Agaric.
These are in almost pristine condition and arranged fortuitously in order of maturity.
I'll have to investigate the sharpness. I guess the camera is set on something stupid.
That's all for now.

  4. I love fungi. Fascinating and beautiful, ever so slightly sinister, and sometimes delicious. We used to have that fungus that tastes like chicken growing on an oak tree in our garden. You would know its name, Adrian?
