Another Red Admiral

On the apple tree

And while the camera is out, the Mallows are in bloom, lovely flowers, fast growing screening.

Recumbent bike, home made!

Spotted this wood/resin recumbent tricycle on the roof of a van on Lowestoft high street, very interesting!

The whole frame appears to be plywood with a tissue/resin fairing.

Feral Kittens

Melanie watching the litter of at least six feral kittens living in the bramble patch in the corner of the paddock alongside our house. Mother is still about, looking a bit moth-eaten. They're about 5 weeks old and you can tell where they are by the occasional sneeze...



I could see a tiny pink flower in amongst the carpet of Biting Stonecrop over the fence from the the playground at the village hall. The maximum telephoto on the Olympus shows it to be a Cranesbill, very dwarfed by living on dry sand in a disused gravel pit...

Pyramidal Orchids

The Pyramidal orchids by the A146 just outside of Beccles, on an uncut grass verge

They are just coming in to flower and are in exquisite condition

There is quite a group of them, not particularly densely packed

Across the paddock behind the house

Sunset while putting the chickens to bed

One stop under exposed came out best

Southern Marsh Orchids

Just time for a quick wander in my lunch break to the edges of Lowestoft


Sunday, 8 June 2014


Afternoon in the garden on a day of strong UV, lots of vitamin D and occasional interesting clouds.


Covehithe Broad

Early morning walk with the children to Covehithe Broad from Covehithe village

Closer to it looks lovely, but you have to keep the double (part electrified) fence, just to the left, out of the picture. Keeps the nests safe and the sand completely unfootprinted. Not pretty in its own right!

Sunset down the Cut

View from the high level bridge at Haddiscoe Dam, looking down the New Cut. About ten past nine, getting close to the Solstice.

Red Admiral

Sat still warming up in the garden


Ellingham Mill

One of the two main sluices, a day or two after a rainy day in summer


Meadow Brown

The Meadow Brown family butterfly which has been around the morning sun strap in the garden for some time, now somewhat the worse for wear, finally sat still for long enough to get a photograph.
