Critters and things that grow

Crested Gecko - Correlophus ciliatus

A quick shot from tonight's session at the Nottingham Outlaws Photographic Society where various creatures were brought in for us to shoot. Loved this shot because it was the sharpest of the lot and the tongue being out helped it a great deal

Winged Beauty

Something a little unusual for me, we were away for the weekend with my camera club and one of the days it rained hard, and I was feeling rough, so we went to the butterfly farm. I have no idea what kind of butterfly this is, it was a little too large to be native to this country, so if anyone wants to have a crack at it, feel free.


This is Rustle, so named because I heard him among the leaves way before I saw him. A skittish little fellah who posed very briefly on my visit to Brownsea island. I have nicknamed red squirrels as "furry bullets", because most of the time they were running around so fast I was unable to catch a shot, this and a couple of other shots were luck more than anything.

I'm sure there were nuts here yesterday

This may or may not be the same squirrel as my last post, they were running from all directions it was hard to follow how many I'd seen or whether it was just one or two darting around. Another in the "furry bullet" series. :) This squirrel is a little darker as it was in the shade this time.
