The Sun Worshipers

Reed Warbler

5 spot Burnet

Ringlet

5 spot Burnet

The sun was was out yesterday in Yorkshire and with it came the wildlife. From the Reed Warbler at the top to the mating 6spot Burnits, the place was buzzing with nature. I spent a couple of hours walking down the canal near where I live and these are a few of the things I saw and photographed.

Yellow hammer

Sedge Warbler

??????????

Corn Bunting

I am hopeless when it comes to plants so if any of you know what the pink flowers are please let me know I am eager to learn.
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO ALL MY AMERICAN FOLLOWERS !

You may have just taken a stroll but the detail, variety and focus on these are wonderful. You exhibit great patience and even better eye for these small creatures.

Thanks for the holiday wishes, mon ami.

Bises,

A productive day at the mill....can't help with plant ID I'm afraid.

Love those insect shots. With my new macro I'll start stalking insects more instead of birds who don't cooperate as much.

Great shots. I'm always especially fond of macros.

Sorry, but plants are hard for me as well and right now I have several that I call unknown red, pink, blue, etc. until I get out the wildflower guide and try to ID them. Your photos were wonderful.

A very productive walk! You found some interesting creatures and got great photos out of it too.

Elaine said...

What a productive day you had! You captured some wonderful images, and I especially like the first image of the Reed Warbler.
