I took up photography when I retired. I photograph a wide variety of things with nature and macro being at the forefront. I am fascinated by the intricate detail in tiny insects and bugs. I wanted to write a blog to share some of the beautiful places I have visited and the wildlife (mostly miniature) I have photographed.
This year I wanted to showcase the images which I felt were the best I had taken in any one month. They won't necessarily be wildlife orientated and could include landscape or architecture.
Not too many photos taken this month but these are my favourites. This Chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita) was happily chirping away on a bright Monday afternoon. It is usually a summer visitor and likes mature deciduous woodland with dense undergrowth.
The Honeybee (Apis mellifera) appears in the garden in early spring. It is one of the most commonest of our bees.
We have been blessed with some beautiful sunsets this year. This was taken from my garden, looking across the River Brett.
