I have added a few more photos to the Flower and Butterfly Galleries (see my fav below). Also, Animal Gallery coming soon!!
I've decided to enter the RHS Photographer of the Year competition! as one of the categories is Wildlife in the Garden, I might stand a chance by entering some of my butterfly shots (although a shot of a butterfly won last year, so this may count against me). The other categories are: Plant Portraits, Abstracts & Details, Gardens through the Seasons, Gardeners, and Grow Your Own. For more details, take a look at http://www.rhs.org.uk/Competitions/Photo-competition
Wish me luck!
Went out to Otmoor Reserve yesterday, and had a great time. The weather was a mixture of cloud and sun, making photography a bit of a challenge, but I managed to photograph some firsts: Comma Butterfly and Gatekeeper Butterfly - both of which I'll put in the gallery shortly. I'd definitely recommend Otmoor to wildlife enthusiasts. ot only are there wetland and meadow birds, there are hundreds of butterflies, insects, flowers and we even saw Hares (that's another first for me!) Will definitely be returning.
