Riverside Walk.

This past week or two has been a real mixed bag of weather,with sun,rain,wind and even hailstones.Pretty much like the whole of the summer,in actual fact.So having got the heron pictures,in the previous blog,I carried the long lens down by the river a few times but primarily it’s the macro lens that I’ve been using on our short walks.So here’s a few images that illustrate what Ollie and I have been up to lately.

Close up of part of a Peacock butterfly wing.

A tree had been uprooted and carried down river,before getting wedged in some shallows.A great perch,until the next flood anyway.

On a grass stem,in the drizzle.

















Looking a bit worse for wear,this Wall butterfly.


A natural way to lose weight.
















This Peacock butterfly was sunning itself.


This Grey Wagtail was on the lookout for flies,on the River Whiteadder.


A side on view of the same, earlier Forest Bug.You can see there’s been even more rain.

This was looking very sorry for itself,in the wet.

















The same Forest Bug eventually decided it might be a good idea to shelter underneath the grass stem,with the aphid.

I just love being out in the countryside whenever possible and preferably with a camera.

  1. This is beautiful photography. The level of detail is so impressive. A bit sad comparing the Wall butterfly to the Peacock butterfly but hopefully the both of them are in good health!
