  1. Good set Keith, the Great Tit has to be the best, scruffier than a Coal Tit.

  6. Keith, your entry this morning lifts my heart. Hope and pray all goes well with yours.
    I have not seen the Marbled White moth before.
    Perhaps I have to move to get a glimpse of such colorful birds.
    My prayers are with you for a fine day.

  15. Fantastic photographs of the butterflies. I have taken a liking to the Marbled White which strangely is a species I've been thinking a lot about recently.

    I seem to have noticed a decrease in the numbers of butterflies near where I live, have you noticed this?

  16. Thanks for your comment Anna.
    Yea, I've noticed a few species down in numbers from last year. Small Tortoiseshell and Small Copper both spring to mind, and I've only seen one Red Admiral, and one Peacock this year.

  17. Good luck with your tests. I hope the photographs were therapeutic; for me there is something relaxing about looking at photos from a macro lens. Good work!
