I haven’t been to Far Pastures for a while so I thought I would pay a visit a few days ago, I ended up going a couple of days on the trot.

…not be everyone’s cup of tea. This Sparrowhawk caught a Starling on our neighbours decking this morning. The images, taken through a rain splashed double glazed kitchen window, are probably not of the best quality you will see however; you don’t see this everyday so I made the most of it before it flew off.

… images from here and there while being out & about over the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately I cannot get this new version of Blogger to work for me. I cannot get the captions for the images to centre the way I used to so I will (for now) put the captions in the main body of the text not ideal I know but until I can work out how to format the blog I will have to do it this way.
The first Hawthorn Shieldbug I have seen (if I have identified it correctly)
Another Southern Hawker
I have seen loads of big Garden Spiders while out.
Common Blue Butterfly
Speckled Wood Butterfly
Eristalis species of Hoverfly
I’m not sure what species of fly this is.

|And pulling shapes|
|This Common Hawker stopped long to get a picture|
|Southern Hawker in flight|
|Again I just liked the light on this Southern Hawker|
