A few Pix from a Nature Reserve, Kent, England


I managed to take a photo of a Green Woodpecker. With the trouble I have taking pix of birds, this is a good moment for me. Pity it is quite far away, but I see this as a success.

I have included another couple of pix of the Six Spot Burnet Moth. I have seen them mating ‘V’ and inverted ‘V’ as well as back to back. Below, a new position for the Six Spot Burnet Moth. One laying on their back. I also took a pic of a pair mating on a failed emerging hatching from a Chrysalis. 

I managed to take a couple of pix of a Painted Lady Butterfly too. 

Enjoy.

Pictures from a Nature Reserve, Kent, England


Below I have posted pix of an assortment of Butterflies, Bees, Moths and Insects. But mainly this is about the Six Spot Burnet Moth. Below are images of them mating, feeding, sadly dying in the middle of hatching and waiting to  hatch.

The pic below shows two chrysalis of the six spot burnet moth yet to hatch on Agrimony. The failed one above was on giant knapweed, not that this was the problem.Image
