  1. I was just checking to see how the tadpoles were growing, when I saw this fellow on the edge of the pond at the top of one of the exit cloths. Usually the adults jump into the water as soon as I approach. I didn't see the insect on his eye until I was processing the image.

  2. A photographer pal and I enjoyed just our second …Street…..outing for almost two years…. This time it was Coventry City Centre, a City of Culture, currently. This is my favourite shot, of the day , I observed my subject for a while, his interaction with a whole flock of very persistent feral pigeons was intense, he was captivated by them; in a world of his own. The sun was exceptionally bright, I like wide open shots in preference to being darker…so my focus has to be spot on my chosen area….. We enjoyed a great day, plus a fabulous lunch in an `Argentinian themed restaurant……

  9. We have a colony of these giant edible snails not very far from us. Introduced by the Romans, these have flourished for over 2000 years locally. The shells of these two measured just over 38mm wide and 41mm tall I didnt get the total length but you have to see 'em to believe 'em!

  13. Such a shame he won't land there again, sadly he'll have passed on to mayfly heaven by today. Nice find. Paul.

  17. They are well-camouflaged and most of the time they stay very still. There have always been frogs in the garden, even before I dug the pond last summer but I only saw them when they jumped out of the way of the lawn mower. I'd been looking into the pond and scooping of some of the excess duckweed for a few minutes before I saw him.

  19. I find spider mites challenging - they are nearly always on the move and not very big... Paul.

  20. Just brilliant Paul……you have captured great detail of a bug that used to fascinated me as a very small child….. we had a south facing front door, so sitting on the step was a very pleasant place to be…… The front door had faded, powdery green paint, it being mid WWII… … The green made the bright red spider mites stand out as they ran in and out if the cracks and joins of the panels……. I spent ages just being fascinated by these tiny creatures…. FUJI
