Carmi challenges us to photograph Critters, large and small, this week. So here are my take on critters I have found in the UK.
Sorry, I don't know what this one is - it might be a hover fly, or possibly a bee. This was taken a couple of years ago - this year it is very worrying as there are NO BEES. Not even a hover fly, and I have deliberately planted bee- and butterfly-friendly flowers. Where are they all?
We get a lot of squirrels in our garden, after the bird food. Most of them are very bold and sit on the water butt outside the kitchen window. This one was doing a runner after I shooed him off!
A heron on the lake in our Park. It was very early, and the light made everything green!
A tortoiseshell butterfly on Sedum. See above on Bees - we have no butterflies either.
Dogs are critters, yes? this is Max, our greedy cocker spaniel.
