Sorry! I never seem to have time to blog at the moment. I’m either photographing wildlife, filming it, adding it to Flickr (see my stuff here), Tweeting about it (my Tweets are here) or adding stuff to Facebook. Far too many online thingys to deal with… my life used to be simple! Anyway, the other day I went for a very wildlife-y walk around my favourite part of Corfe Mullen.
It was a truly beautiful spring day today in Dorset. Perfect blue sky and lots of warm sunshine.
I think the insects appreciated the warmth as much as I did and in-between bouts of gardening, housework and washing I chased them round the garden with my camera.
A lot has been happening in the garden over the past few days.
I can’t begin to explain how tired I am tonight. It’s a long time since I’ve been this knackered. So where have I been? Absolutely nowhere. Today, with the sun shining and the birds singing I decided to stay in my own garden.
This trip I’ve seen Men of War on the beach, but this zebra isn’t of the four-legged variety. It’s a beautiful butterfly called the Zebra Longwing Heliconius charithonia and was actually made the official butterfly of Florida in 1996. I wonder if we have an official butterfly of Dorset?… doubtful!
After a cloudy and breezy start, the day brightened into a warm sunny day. At about 4pm I decided to take a walk at the nature reserve before it got dark.
