Wildlife Trips

This May we are off to the Vercors in France for a butterfly, orchid, birds and mammals holiday with Naturetrek. Plenty of gentle walking and a lunch time picnic - lots of opportunities for photographs with many species of butterflies and orchids not common in the UK.

June sees us back in Kent for the hares and hopefully this time (fourth time lucky!) we will get to see heath fritillary at Blean Woods

September then will find us in Somerset where we can hopefully find birds and landscapes (not too far from north or south coast of the UK - Dorset and Devon)

Photographically I will be concentrating on stock photography but I have been building my breeding species of butterflies ready for photographing next year. I already have Chinese Oak silkmoth cocoons which I hope to breed from and have recently added Chequered Blue (butterfly from France) and Duke of Burgundy pupae. Shortly arriving too will be White Letter Hairstreak and Silver Studded Blue ova and White Admiral larvae. So along with my Large White pupae, Speckled Wood larvae and Brown Hairstreak ova I should hopefully have a nice range of species to photograph.

I have recently bought the equipment to enable me to have my flash off camera (always being told that this is where it needs to be!) so will be trying that out during the winter months.

Then I need to master the Lee ND filter (tried this summer but need to spend more time with it!)
