It’s been ages since I posted but I haven’t had much to say!
I thought I might blog quickly about some nature photographs I was able to take this weekend whilst out in Worcestershire with my walking group. I was really pleased with how they came out!
I spotted a dew covered web in the grass on the side of the footpath through a field. I didn’t even realise at first, but someone else pointed out that it was a funnel web spider! I’ve never seen one before and later that same walk I saw another 5 or 6!
I didn’t get any shots of the actual spider but I was able to photograph the dew-covered web and the cricket perched on a blade of grass above it:
After that I saw a thistle – symbol of Scotland in deepest Worcestershire:
A little further on I stopped briefly to photograph a dandelion with its seeds ready for dispersal. I think these were my favourite shots of the afternoon:
I was out on a walk so you would think that my main subject would have been landscapes, but actually the haze and cloud meant that it was better to look nearer for inspiration!
