The hills are alive........

......with wildlife. After 4 or 5 days around Lochgoilhead, I still haven't seen any red squirrels, but I've spied lots of insects, butterflies, bees, birds I don't normally come across back home. The bracing walk around the estate I took this morning yielded some interesting photographic opportunities.

I was disappointed thus far with the lack of opportunity for nature photography. There are a multitude of different plant varieties growing wild at the edges of the footpath, teaming with many different species of bee and butterfly which I managed to capture in the wild despite my feet making a racket on the gravel and disturbing my subjects. The wonder of a telephoto lens.

There are a lot of small streams up in the hills, home to of all things, several species of dragonfly, one of which I was able to photograph, much to my surprise as I really didn't think I'd find one that wasn't flying around. But fortunately, one alighted on a rock in a fast flowing stream and I managed to take a number of images. It was rather beautiful.

When I get back home I'm looking forward to posting my images, until then you'll have to make do with my text only post. Hopefully more later.
