Pictures from a Nature Reserve, Kent, England


I have posted pix today of a pregnant Slow Worm, Long Tailed Tits and a Brimstone Butterfly, I couldn’t get the picture of a Clouded Yellow Butterfly I saw, It was flying too fast for me. But I will try to get it next week.

 

I don’t like taking pix of wildlife not in their natural surroundings, but I can’t get very good pix of birds in the wild and the compost heap I found this slow worm on was too good to miss.

I saw something today I did not realise happened. I saw a Peacock Butterfly poop in the same way Birds do, and with the same force. It never occured to me that Butterflies do this. It looked like a birds, too. 

Finally, a ‘Count how many’ Competition. How many Ants in the pic? It may help to count the legs and divide by six, or count the antennae and divide by two….Have fun!

The photos above are of a pair of flies mating, red ants on a wild flower, a tweyblade orchid beginning to flower and female broad bodied chaser resting on privet hedge. The males are blue. The pix were taken with an Olympus 820i digital camera.
