The flowers are quite spectacular at the moment, the Bluebells are going over, but the campion is in full flower producing swathes of pink or white flowers. I should probably try and get some photos of puffins in the flowers really, but I’ve been leaving my camera behind recently whilst going around my study sites in the name of reducing the weight in my backpack!
I found this larvae on the path, and took a few photos and some video of it using macro extension tubes so that I could get really really close. I think it’s a ladybird larvae but I’m not too sure. I’ll have to see if I can find out.
The hairs on the campion work well with a backlight giving a glow to the edges, the young stems and leaves also seem to glow in the light.
Heading back from a study site late in the evening there was a beautiful sunset. Sophia and Julie (two of my colleagues) didn’t realise they were still in the photo, I decided they add a “this could be you here” feel. There are lots of filters available in Lightroom and on smartphone apps so I have been experimenting a little with them.
