Red Admiral Butterfly.

I shot this Red Admiral at the Broad Haven’s Slashpond, when I was there in July.

The locals have formed a volunteer group to carry out running repairs. I have great respect for those that get out into nature to do worthwhile things that make a difference ( http://www.supporttheboardwalk.co.uk ).

The scent of mint was pleasant and heavy in Hoo Wood last night; Mother of Pearl moths were drawn to its heady aroma and my head torch.

Flying Spider Time Again!

Sunrise: 06.10    Sunset: 08.11

The nights are drawing in. It’s not easy to photograph flying spider in darkness, but I had a go tonight. A swinging spider is more accurate.
