  • Wiered red sun

    This image was taken at Mid-day. No filters where needed to take the image. The redness is caused by a mixture of dust sucked up from North Africa and smoke sucked up from wild fires in Portugal. Together with storm Ophelia, it created an eerie sky.

  • iron pyrite

    An iron nodule that has been split. Found on Mere Downs in Wiltshire, England.

    Fossilised dinosaur poo from the Jurassic period. Found near Lyme Regis, England, an area known as the Jurassic coast and famous for it's fossils.

  • Rose by any other name

    I bought this rose for my mothers birthday a few years ago and it flowers all through the Summer. A good buy I think.

  • colour

    The bright orange of the nasturtium flowers and the contrast of the round, green leaves are wonderful at this time of year. The whole plant is edible. It has a strong pepper taste, wonderful in salads.

    Not seen as often as it was when I was a kid, but still a beauty.

  • Gonepteryx

    The Brimstone butterfly. In English it is thought that the word 'butter'fly comes from this guy because of it's colour.

  • Beautiful blue

    Common blue butterfly Polyommatus icarus. As the name suggests, this is the most common blue butterfly found in Britain. It is a sub-species of it's European cousins.
