Large Skipper

Atlantic Grey Bull Seal
Common Spotted Orchid


After a heavy night out in Falmouth for Pub golf with friends, Sarah and I were in much need of some fresh air.
Gale force winds were a little excessive, but despite the wind a walk was on the cards. Trying to photograph insects and flowers with high winds is not easy but i think i managed to pull off a few decent shots.

Whilst Sarah sheltered from the heavy rain shower which appeared from nowhere, I spent around twenty minutes with three seals which appeared to be having some fun fishing and chilling out; lovely!!!

The Six Spot Burnet moth is one of the few day flying moths; it is very common and found around damp meadows.  They are beautifully coloured and very patient whilst being photographed.

Is the butterfly a Large Skipper or small???

Sunday Evening on the Moor..



Heath Spotted Orchid, I Think??

The picture of the Nightjar was just by chance, it flew on to an old pine whilst i was eating my Pasty!! A first for me, not an easy bird to capture due to it's Nocturnal habits.. Very pleased, Beautiful bird not easily seen due to it's superb camouflage...
