    Was it the accent that gave it away?

    I went out briefly on a springtail safari on the remains of a felled pine plantation. I was hoping to find some pools and some aquatic speceies but that did not work out.


    Here is what I found.

    That picture is superb! I love sparrowhawks!

    Never posted on here before as I am useless at taking pictures. But I caught this on my trail cam, the end of October.

    Here are some shots from late November 2016. These were with my Olympus E-M5II Zuiko 60 mm f2.8 and tubes plus Raynox and my usual Nissin Di466 flash


    Here is a tiny juvenile (I think) springtail

    These were shot at ISO 800 by mistake so many were not as good as I wanted. Here are some I have just processed.


    The first are waps feeing on hogweed, there were a lot of them
