Landscapes and a lep’.

Another 5.15am start. Strangely the sun seemed to be earlier today and it was a bit of a race. This time I had my boots on. The tide of course was different and I started with a 14mm prime lens as opposed to the 10-24mm zoom (x1.5 for full frame equivalent). Later I switched to a 23mm prime with a polarizer. I finished with the big stopper on the 10-24 zoom. A veritable packet of Allsorts today. But which is which? It doesn’t matter. Here we go:

I also found a rather nice butterfly, a Hesperiidae: Burara oedipodea belesis. My reference books say it is scarce / local but I have been fooled by that before. It may be as common as a skunk by now.

It certainly cooperated a lot more than the books say it should. A final image, neither landscape nor lep’ has snuck in and I need to find an ID.


Its been poor bugwise recently but I did enjoy watching a Common Kingfisher this morning and a trio of Common Sandpipers. They were in fantastic light but not much use with a wide angle zoom. They would have looked like dust bunnies. Ah well, the bright orange butterfly made my morning.

  1. Lovely landscapes! My favorite is the one with all the rocks in the foreground. Wish I could help you with your mystery bug but I’m next to useless when it comes to that type of thing. 🙂 Great set of photos!

  2. Like the new header. Images 1 and 3 are my favourites. I like the smoothness of 1 and the dramatic composition in 3.

    That final bug is an interesting creature and very nice close up.
    Funny you should be watching the Kingfisher today. I was watching a Belted Kingfisher but only able to get a distant photo to record it. There is something special about Kingfishers.

  3. This time around, I favor the single rock as I think it ties the image together much better than the previous which seemed to divide it. I think you’ve found yourself as wonderful spot.

    No surprise…I have no idea about your mystery bug and I know it will be revealed in your next post. 🙂

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
